Video shows a burglar making sure the family dog doesn't escape out of the house he broke into

A burglar who broke into a Massachusetts home showed some heart when he made sure the family's dog did not get out of the house.

The unidentified man was caught on security cameras entering the home in East Milton through a sliding back door on May 7.

After spending about two minutes in the house , he is seen coming back through the house with his face covered and out the same door.

But it wasn't before he calls out to the dog and motions it to come back inside so it doesn't get loose.
