This hero ambles around the street, minding its own business, until it sees someone needs help. It’s not a human but a stray dog in Montenegro.

It was an ordinary day in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro. The dog watched a woman walk past him, followed shortly by a man in a yellow hooded jacket. As the video above shows, the man had chosen a bad spot to try to rob the woman.

Because even as he pounced on her to snatch her bag, the dog ran up to him and snapped at his heels. Terrified, the would-be robber fled, with the dog giving fiery chase.
