Dog guards his family’s bread every time they leave the house

Dogs, like all animals, have certain instincts. For example, it's a well-known fact that many breeds of dogs feel a strong instinct to protect their loved ones. Yes, they may they have a lot of lighthearted qualities such as being affectionate, energetic and playful - but they're also wired towards guarding people and things that they value.

This is why we couldn't help but laugh when we came across a certain pup who insists on guarding her family's bread every time they leave the house. The guarder of bread in question, six-year-old German rottweiler Jakey, takes her duties very seriously. So much so that the dog's owner Katrina Frank, 30, couldn't help but share the footage with the world.

Check out this adorable footage of Jakey, the pooch who guards bread every time his family leaves the house:

According to Frank, whenever the family leave the house, Jakey will protect the bread, and other baked goods she can get her paws on. Whenever Frank would try to hide the bread, Jakey would somehow manage to find it and proceed with "keeping it safe".

It's likely, due to how often the dog sees her family with bread, Jakey has come to the conclusion that it is a treasured possession, and thus strives to keep it safe.

Needless to say, plenty of people have taken to social media to share their adoration for the dog's unparalleled carb-protecting abilities.

One person said: "She protects She attacks But most importantly she keeps the bread [sic]."

Another suggested: "Put a GoPro on the dog so we can see Jake get the bread". A third gushed: "Cute baby boi, Cute baby girl But a very good doggo in all of our hearts [sic]."
