Suspended prison term for breaking into someone's home and stealing? That basically encourages people to do the same.

"Dacshund" from the German "dachs-" (badger) and "hund" (dog), and were bred to squeeze into burrows and bark ferociously, startling the occupants to flee out the back door, where the hunters would be waiting. This explains their shape, fearlessness, ferocious bark.

This "story" shouldn't really be in the crime section. Not really crime worthy news. More like gossip to me.

"Heroism"??  Award???  Infantile.

Suspended sentence for B&E and burglary?

For a society that loves rules and order, Japan's judicial system seems to be quite lenient towards those who break them.

He'll just go out and do it again.

Lucy showed heroism in barking loudly to alert her owner, the local police said.

Nice story. It is good to see stories like this. Hope to see more.

Really? I think once or twice a year is enough. That's regional newspapers stuff and am talking 7/8th page on an extremely quiet news day.
