Two suspects in Central Florida went barking in the wrong backyard on Thursday night.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Helicopter was following the two men, who were wanted for driving a car with stolen tags.

As the suspects were fleeing on foot through a backyard, a dog comes charging at them, defending his territory against the intruders.

The dog was even able to jump up and knock one of the men to the ground.

Thanks to the pet patrol, the suspects were eventually caught and taken into custody.

In addition to driving a car with a stolen tag, the suspects were also allegedly carrying several bags of heroin, cocaine, and approximately $2,000 in cash.
