This right here is why most criminals leave their dogs at home when they go out on burglaries.
Ever wondered why you hear a lot of talk about "cat burglars," but never so much as a peep about "dog burglars"? Well, it's because dogs make terrible burglars, as a San Antonio man learned when he brought his chihuahua along on a break-in earlier this week. After making a daring escape and hiding in the bushes, the growling of the dog gave away Gerardo Daniel Reyna's position to police, leading to his arrest. This is why, traditionally, dogs stay on the "security" end of crime. It plays to their strengths.
