Gracie has got many amazing qualities. But being a guard-dog isn't one of them! In fact, she might be the laziest guard-dog ever, and her owner has got the video to prove it!

Scott Hubbard was looking for a furry friend rather than a fearless protector. And that's why he decided to adopt an adorable Chihuahua named Gracie.

Gracie gets busted!

Still, with the Chihuahua's reputation for being 'yappy' and a little feisty, he assumed Gracie would do a good job deterring any intruders.

But just a few hours into her first shift as the family protector, Scott caught Gracie napping on the job!

A short clip posted on Instagram shows Gracie in full chill-mode while stretched out on a mini-little sun-lounger.

Scott decided to carry out a performance review. And unfortunately, it was a 0/10 for Gracie the guard dog.

Gracie couldn't make the cut, but these guys will! Here are the 6 best guard dog breeds!

She has since been relieved of all guarding duties. However, as Scott told the Dodo, Gracie makes a huge contribution in other ways: 

"She is extremely loving and happy."

Just keep being you, Gracie!

And having a super chill-dog also has its benefits:

"She's the most relaxed dog I've ever met in my life," continued Scott. "I never have to think, 'I wonder what Gracie is doing?'"

Gracie just isn't cut-out for that guard dog life. But it doesn't matter. She still makes Scott smile every day, and what more could a dog-dad ask for?
