Police dog persuades burglary suspect to give up

GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - A burglary suspect holed up in an Oregon deli refused police commands to come out, but changed his mind after hearing from a police dog.     

Gresham police say the police dog persuaded 31-year-old James Patrick Brennan III to surrender early Wednesday because the man was worried its bite would be worse than its bark.    

Police spokesman Sgt. Claudio Grandjean says the dog was brought there because its "bark is intimidating." He says it's a common tactic to keep police from having to use weapons or risk being hurt while trying to get a suspect to give up.    

The Oregonian reports that a patrol officer had discovered the burglary when he noticed a suspicious car outside the store that had been burgled in January.
