Having a dog has its advantages:  they make great company, they look cute in Instagram pictures, and they may even be a good home defense system.

On Sunday afternoon, around 2:20 pm, a man from Lanoka Harbor on Laurel Blvd. heard his dog barking while he was in the shower, according to police.

The man went to check on his dog and see why he was barking so much. The resident was in for a big surprise. A man had entered into the home through a door that was unlocked. The homeowner’s dog took action and bit the intruder’s right arm.

The suspect fled the scene, bleeding. As of now, the homeowner does not think anything was stolen.

The incident is currently being investigated by the Lacey Township Detective Bureau.
