SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. - Neighbors in a northern California county called police earlier this week when they thought a prowler was peaking out windows of a home.

A Facebook post from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said when deputies showed up at the home they realized the alleged prowler was larger than they had suspected and had four legs.

Deputies soon realized the culprit was a Great Dane attempting to escape from the home through an unsecured skylight.

Because of the "bad dog" behavior, the sheriff's office says the pooch wasn’t given any treats.
