Trending: Tiny dog thwarts attempted robbery

(WVUE) - An alleged attempted burglar met his match... at the paws of a Yorkshire Terrier.

A surveillance camera rolls as an attempted robbery is thwarted by the pint-sized dog. The video surfaced on YouTube last week and has quickly gone viral, receiving more than 1 million views.

A man is seen snooping in the backyard of a home. He is chased from the property by a feisty Yorkshire Terrier, who sends the suspect running for his life and leaping over a fence.

The description in the video claims the incident happened somewhere in South Africa.
