Dogs are famous for guarding their favourite humans, but one pooch has a bizarre way of showing off her protective instincts. And her peculiar habits have made her a star!

Every time her family leaves the house, Jakey the Rottweiler has a habit of rounding up all the bread and cookies, then standing guard over them until her humans come back.
Jakey takes her job very seriously
Jakey has been taking responsibility for the carbs and sweet treats for almost four years now. And in those fours years, she's never had a bite of a single cookie or nibbled on a slice of bread!
Katrina Frank, Jakey's dog-mum, told The Metro:
"I [once thought] she had eaten over a dozen cookies. [Then] she led me around to all 17 cookies, hidden all over the house. She had not broken a single one."
Now that's what you call loyalty!
And no matter where Katrina stashes the goods, Jakey knows she can do a better job of keeping them safe:
"I can put the bread anywhere – counter, breadbox, or fridge," said Katrina. "She will find it and protect it anytime we leave!"
No-one is dipping into this cookie jar!
Viewers shared their thoughts on the pup's carb obsession. The consensus is that Jakey is a very good dog who takes her guard duties seriously.
So any cookie thieves and bread snatches beware - Jakey is never off duty!
