A drug gang were let down by their guard dog at the worst possible time after he went on strike and refused to protect his owners during a police raid.
Police swarmed the gang's hideout at a ranch in Hortolandia, Sao Paulo state, Brazil, on July 28 and seized 1,176 bricks containing 1.1 tonnes of marijuana from the property.
A video of the raid shows the three suspects lying face-down on the floor with their hands cuffed behind their backs.

But rather than protecting his owners, the gang's massive Rottweiler decided to surrender aswell and flopped down beside the three suspects.
Narcotics Police report that the drugs had been shipped to the house in Hortolandia from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul state.
But police had been monitoring the property and swept in when the delivery arrived.
Police believe the drugs were destined to be sold in and around Campinas, Sao Paulo state.
The men – one of whom owns the house – were taken to the Narcotics Police headquarters in nearby Americana.
The dog remained in the property with the female owner of the land around the house, who police say is not involved in drug trafficking.
Police returned on July 29 to check on the Rottweiler and two other dogs to see if the animal protection services need to be called.
