Chihuahua Helps Police Catch Suspect


Tank is a three-pound Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix, but don’t underestimate what this little furry dog can do. He fights crime.

It all started on Christmas Day when a suspect who was being chased by police crashed a stolen car into a hillside. 2 1/2-year-old Tank found the suspect hiding under a nearby motor home and chased him into the woods.

When authorities came to the scene, Tank led them straight to the suspect’s hiding spot deep in the woods. The man gave himself up.

After the arrest, the sheriff’s deputy pointed to Tank and said, “That’s a canine unit right there!”

Tank’s owner said, “He’s like a big dog in a little dog’s suit.”

    Tank, so appropriately named.

    Never judge the power of any creature by his size.

    Tank is fierce-looking! I would take him seriously, too, if I got on his bad side.
