(TMU) — Rottweilers are one of the best breeds of dog ever, known for being affectionate, loyal, and hard workers. They’re also often bred to be fierce guard dogs. However, in the case of 6-year-old dog Jakey, this dog is a fierce guard when it comes to bread.
Jakey isn’t your typical Rottweiler, although she is an excellent watchdog. Every time Jakey’s family leaves the home, she snatches up all of the bread in the home and guards it until her human parents return home.
According to Jakey’s family, she’s been doing this ever since they moved out to their farm four years ago. And while the family originally believed that she hid the bread out of a fondness for carby goodness, in truth this was just Jakey asserting her nature as a loyal sentinel—in this case, a bread guard.
Jakey’s Mom, Katrina Frank, told the Dodo:
“We have a bread box so she likes to hop up and pull it out of there.
If I leave it in the pantry instead, she nudges the door open and gets it out. I’ve put it in the refrigerator before and she has opened the door to get to it.”
There’s zero doubt that this dog knows how to perform her guardian role with the utmost professionalism. Katrina explained:
“She likes to put it behind the couch and lay by it. Otherwise, [she puts it in] the closet in my bedroom.”
I assume she thinks it’s the most important thing to us because we use it so often.”
Even when the family is out of bread, Jakey moves on to other baked goods such as cookies. One time, she even hid 17 individual cookies without breaking a single one. When the family runs out of starchy foods, Jakey then ensures that the butter is secure.
And whenever Katrina comes home, Jakey dutifully guides her back to the bread. Even when the bread is difficult to find, she knows that Jakey will never allow these important foods to go missing.
I just got home and the worlds best bread protector ensured the dollar buns stayed safe from burglars as usual. Don't really know what we would do without her.Ignore the mess….kids+farm+warm weather+life=chaos.
