A 9-year-old Labrador Retriever thwarted a porch pirate’s plan to steal a package from a Cahoon residence in Ogden, Utah, and their doorbell camera caught the whole thing on tape.

The pup, named Zero, can be seen running after the thief as he hops in his getaway car.

“I just kind of yelled, ‘Get ‘em Zero! Get ‘em!” Whitney Cahoon, Zero’s owner, tells Fox 13. “He just went for it, it was awesome!”

Thanks to Zero, the porch pirate tossed the package from the car onto the road.

“I’m hoping that [the] word spread from them not to mess with us,” Cahoon tells Fox 13.

 According to the outlet, the package contained a 4 dollar dimmer switch.
