We've all heard of a guard dog, but a guard squirrel? That's new. Adam Pearl walked into his Meridian, Idaho house and knew something was wrong after noticing unusual prints in the show and certain doors in his house closed that were normally open.
While his pet squirrel Joey was seemingly normal, he went into the back room and noticed scratches on the door, which confirmed his suspicions that someone had been in the house.
Sure enough, a local officer has interviewed a man suspected of robbing Pearl and he admitted Joey "kept attacking me and wouldn't stop until I left." Now that's a good pet.
