Georgio wasn’t having it.
When two suspects being chased by police swept through the pup’s yard in Daytona Beach, the black 2-year-old rescue dog decided to get his paws dirty.
The alleged criminals — who police say were carrying baggies of heroin, cocaine and cash — had just ditched a stolen car a few blocks away before trying to outrun deputies by breaking into a nearby backyard.
But the duo didn’t make it very far.

Georgio the dog took one of them down, WKMG News6 reported, forcing the suspect to the ground.
Volusia County Sheriff deputies, who caught the chase on video from a helicopter, arrived shortly after.
Georgio’s owner, Mario Figueroa told the Orlando station he was lighting a fire pit when the two men came dashing through his yard.
“I was standing right there and didn’t even see the gentlemen coming in from behind me,” Figueroa said. “All of a sudden I hear the dog tackle a guy in the yard, a gentleman runs by me and I hear one of them say, ‘Get the dog off me.’ The guys were on his territory and he took them down.”
