Anyone who owns a dog knows that these furry and faithful creatures often have this ingrained need to keep us safe. They bark when a stranger comes to the door, keep their ears up to monitor their surroundings even when they’re resting, and come as soon as we call. But Cyrus, a 2-year-old Bull Mastiff seems to have gone a little too far when it comes to guarding his owner.
Cyrus recently started doing something that we have to admit is a little creepy. He follows his owner’s every move – but from afar – hiding behind furniture and staring at her like a stalker.
“Sometimes I don’t even notice that he is following me until I get out of my chair or look around the room and see him staring at me from behind some piece of furniture,” says his owner, Lauren.
“My theory is that he stares at me and follows me around all the time because he’s afraid I’m going to disappear on him so he wants to know where I am and what I’m doing all the time.”
“It can definitely be both surprising and creepy.”
“But I learned to love it and I wouldn’t change him for the world.”
“From the very beginning he was this loving creature that would do anything to get my attention.”- Advertisement -
“Whether it was barking so I would pay attention to him or learn the art of camouflage and stalking, as you can see in the photos.”
“Oh and by the way, in addition to being a professional stalker, Cyrus has a big heart and helps save lives.”

“Every four months he donates blood to dogs in who need it.”
“And yes, he knows he’s a stalker. And after the court found him guilty, it became official and now he’s serving out his jail sentence at home with me :)”
