Pug Picks Fight With K-9, SWAT Team During Police Standoff (VIDEO)

| by Phyllis M Daugherty

While Phoenix PD officers were trying to negotiate during what turned out to be a four-hour standoff with an armed robbery suspect barricaded in his Phoenix home, a little dog wandered down the street and tried to pick a fight with the police K-9 and the officers themselves.

Video taken on Wednesday shows what appears to be a Pug running up to police in front of a home near 43rd and Northern Avenues, and then running away when officers tried to catch him.

He finally got the K-9 irritated enough to start barking at him before officers managed to "shoo" the little guy away. Even then he didn't give up until several cops fanned out to discourage him from circling around again. If any part of the self-confident little canine is Pug, it is definitely his tenacity.
