Tiny Yorkie Takes On Bear, Wins

0

Sometimes Small Dog Syndrome can be a good thing, especially if the little guy manages to scare away an uninvited lunch guest.

Deborhah Epstein was enjoying a restful morning on her porch with her pooch Joe, a six-pound Yorkshire Terrier. She went inside to answer a phone call and accidentally left her door open. A 100-pound bear took advantage of her oversight and decided to invite himself in for a visit. She says bears are common in her neighborhood in New Jersey.

Joe will normally bark at anyone who comes to the door, but this time the barking sounded pretty furious.

Epstein went to see what all the fuss was about and was shocked to find a bear inside her home. He was going for Joe's dog bowl, which is a big no-no for a dog with food protection issues. Normally this is a behavior owners try to curtail, but in this case a little dog with a big attitude was a good thing.

Joe started attacking the bear and eventually managed to chase the intruder out the door.

Epstein says they're even now: "I saved him from the pound, and he saved me from a bear."
