Brazilian Drug Suspects Arrested And Their Dog Surrenders Too


We know that dogs are loyal to their humans to the very end, but a dog from Brazil took faithfulness to another level.

During a drug bust in Florianópolis, Brazil, a super devoted dog decided to lay down and surrender as his owners were arrested by the police. Despite the fact that the pooch was probably the gang’s guard dog, the little fellow didn’t give the officers a hard time; on the contrary, the dog stood by his owners’ side no matter what. Having all of this mind, it’s easy to understand why the pooch became an instant internet sensation and vowed people from all around the world.

According to Mirror Online, police spokesman Filippo Valdez described the entire incident and put an emphasis on the dog’s surrender. It’s also important to note that the dog was not arrested with the rest of the gang.

“The officers had been observing the gang for some time. When they arrested them, they recovered a substantial quantity of marijuana and cocaine, as well as weighing scales, guns and ammunition. There was a male dog that was barking when officers burst onto the scene but when it saw its owners obeying the command to lie down, it ran over and laid down as well.”

Brazilian animal psychiatrist and dog trainer Barnie Rico explained why the pooch imitated his owners and put his paws up.

“The dog lying on its back exposing its belly is a classic sign of submission in the dog world. By exposing its soft underbelly to any potential attacker it is showing that it doesn’t mean any trouble. 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.”

Well, one thing’s obvious: your dog will unconditionally love you regardless of your actions.
