MANOSQUE, France – A fearless dog protected his owner from an attempted robbery, chasing away a brazen burglar in seconds.

Just as a shop worker was closing up for the day, a man dressed in black and wearing a mask stormed in. CCTV video shows him holding what appears to be a gun, threatening the worker.

As the masked man approaches the man, a large dog runs out from behind the counter, barking and chasing the intruder.

The almost thief is forced to run out of the shop, empty handed.

Watch the incredible video above.
