THIS is the bizarre moment a gang’s guard dog refuses to do his job and flopped down down next to them.
The cowardly canine was meant to be protecting the drug dealers but thought better off it when cops raided their hideout.
Narcotics officers arrested the three men on a ranch in Hortolandia, Sao Paulo state, Brazil.
The officers seized 1,176 bricks containing 1.1 tonnes of marijuana from the property.
A police video of the raid shows the three suspects lying face-down on the floor with their hands cuffed behind their backs.
But the gang’s massive Rottweiler decided to surrender too and lay down beside the three suspects.
According to Narcotics Police, the drugs had been shipped to the house in Hortolandia from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul state.
But police had been monitoring the property and swept in when the delivery arrived.
Cops believe the drugs were destined to be sold in and around Campinas, Sao Paulo state.
The men – one of whom owns the house – were taken to the Narcotics Police headquarters in nearby Americana.
The dog remained in the property with the female owner of the land around the house, who police say is not involved in drug trafficking.
Cops are seeing if it and the two other dogs to see if the animal protection services need to be called.
It comes after a dog on the other side of the law in Brazil also disgraced itself.
A police dog invaded the pitch in state championship final and ran off with ball in its mouth.
The tense clash between Nautico and Retro was given some light relief when an overexcited canine invaded the pitch.
Video of the incident was shared on Twitter, with the dog bringing the game to a halt as it tore across the grass without a care in the world.
Wearing police colours, the dog drew boos from the crowd while it ran around in circles at the Estadio dos Aflitos in the city of Recife.
