CCTV footage from the Mont d’Or tobacco shop in Manosque, France, shows a terrifying scene that fortunately has a happy ending.
Just as the owner of the shop was closing up for the day, an armed, masked robber attempted to hold up the store owner while he was outside taking out the trash.
The man quickly retreated into the store, with the thief following him behind the counter, at which point a big dog comes charging out, chasing the robber out of the store. Together, they proceed to fight off the assailant.
The gunman is forced to flee the shop empty-handed.
Neither the dog, nor the shopkeeper, were harmed.
