A joint police and military operation took place April 2nd, 2015 to raid an alleged drug ring. When officers burst onto the scene they were greeted by a guard dog barking uncontrollably. As his owner and fellow gang members were rounded up and ordered to lie face down on the ground the dog chose to comply to police commands as well and laid down in submission as they completed their raid.

According to the NY Post, Central European News reports that Filippo Valdez, a spokesman for the Brazilian police, explained that, “The officers had been observing the gang for some time and when they arrested them they recovered a substantial quantity of marijuana and cocaine, as well as weighing scales, guns and ammunition.”

The dogs actions probably saved his life because Brazilian cops are known for killing animals during raids.

An animal psychiatrist, Barnie Rico, sheds light on the dogs behavior, “By exposing its soft underbelly to any potential attacker it is showing that it doesn’t mean any trouble,” Rico said. “The dog is also turning its head away as looking at the potential enemy can also be seen as a sign of aggression to another dog. It is clearly a very clever animal because it saw the rest of its pack give in, and decided to copy them.”

Though his pack was arrested it is believed the dog was released without charges.
