Dog Guards Family's Bread Whenever They Leave the House | 22 Words

Dogs are smarter than we ever give them credit for - but one particular pooch has absolutely wowed the internet this week with their ingenuity. Jakey the rottweiler has a pretty unique way of looking out for his owners - and it's so cute.

It's safe to say that dogs are one of the world's most popular pets.

These lovable and loyal companions make the perfect household pets, and it also helps that they’re so damn cute.

They are truly man's best pals.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

In fact, it's basically what unites the internet.

There’s one thing it seems we can all agree on – our canine pals are too good for this world.

But one dog has really captured the internet's heart this week.

And their story is just adorable.

If you have a dog, you know one thing.

They're increidbly loyal and protective of their owners.

One cute thing about dogs?

They'll do absolutely anything for those they love.

And one dog has proven themselves as a true hero this week.

For a rather unique reason...

This is a dog who just wants to look out for their owners.

But has hilariously got the wrong end of the stick...

This is a guard dog with a difference.

Jakey the rottweiler will do anything to protect his owner's prized possessions.

But she thinks the prized possession is...

The bread. We guess she's not wrong.

Jakey is from Buffalo, Minnesota.

And her owners document his incredibly cute antics on Instagram.

But there's one habit that's particularly adorable.

And the internet is going wild for it.

Jakey loves to guard the family's bread.

And she has done for as long as owners can remember.

"She began hiding her bread when we moved into our farm four years ago."

"I’d come home at night and find her laying by the bread. I’ve never thought much of it and I would just thank her for keeping the bread safe and pick it up and move on," said owner Katrina.

"I’m assuming because we use it so often, she believes it is the most important thing in our house."

"I can put the bread anywhere-counter, breadbox, pantry, fridge – and she will find it and protect it anytime we leave."

"If we don’t have bread, she moves on to baked goods."

A dog after our own hearts.

What a cutie!
