They are called man’s best friend for a reason.

A dog in Seattle is recovering after she chased a burglar out of her owner’s house when the owner was out.

Police said a neighbor called 911 after hearing a commotion coming from inside the house.

Police arrived and said they heard the dog, named Egypt, barking inside. After climbing through the window, they found Egypt with a deep cut on her paw.

Egypt’s owner said the dog cut herself on a window when she was chasing the burglar away.

Police bandaged Egypt up and waited for her owner to come home. She was later taken to the vet.

Officials said Egypt will need at least eight weeks to heal her injured paws.
