A woman who saw her husband being arrested during lockdown pleaded with cops to leave her dog and just take her husband.
Footage filmed in Lima, Peru, show the woman shouting down from a balcony as police speak to her husband who is on the street with their pooch.
The incident was filmed during day five of the Covid-19 lockdown in Peru. Peru has so far confirmed nine deaths due to coronavirus, with 480 positive cases as of 25 March.
In the clip, a man can be seen with his dog being detained by a police officer wearing a mask, as the woman yells out: "Do not take my dog, no, my dog no.
"Sir, do not touch my dog, give my dog back, do not touch my dog."
According to local media, the man shouted back to his wife: "I told you I was going to be arrested!"
It's reported that cops took the dog home to the woman while her husband was carted off to a nearby police station.
It is not known what the man was arrested for. Walking dogs is allowed under Peruvian lockdown rules, but an 8pm to 4am curfew is currently in place and the time of the arrest has not been disclosed.
The man later told reporters he spent more than hour walking the dog, which could have been classed as too long by officers.
Meanwhile, over in Mexico one savvy dog owner used his four-legged friend to get around quarantine rules by writing a note, sticking it in her collar and sending her out to pick up snacks. Genius.
Antonio Munoz was craving some Cheetos on his third day in quarantine when he came up with the bright idea of getting his pooch to help out.
Grabbing a pen and paper, he wrote: "Hello Mr. Shopkeeper. Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red ones, they're too hot. She has $20 attached to her collar.
"WARNING: She will bite if not treated right. Your front neighbour."
He then sent the dog out to the shop. A further upload from Antonio shows the cute pup carrying a bag of orange Cheetos in her mouth - what a good girl.
