ALTADENA, Calif. — Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have released a video of a barking Chihuahua angrily chasing off robbers at an Altadena smoke shop.

The video, released Monday, shows two hooded men, one armed with a rifle, running into the Ace Smoke Shop on July 7 and demanding money.

As the store owner begins putting money in a backpack carried by one of the men, the owner's Chihuahua begins barking incessantly and jumping at the men, chasing them out of the store and down the street.

At one point, one of the men even points his rifle at the Chihuahua, but the dog is undaunted.

Neither the store owner, nor the dog was injured.
