There is a reason they call dogs man’s best friend.

Lambton OPP say a family can thank their pet for foiling a would-be thief.

Just after 9 am June 11, police were called to a home on Henderson Drive. Someone had knocked on the homeowner’s door, then forced the front door open -by kicking it – while the homeowners were inside.

But the family dog would have none of it and scared off the intruder.

The OPP’s Street Crime Unit is investigating the incident.
