For guests at Henry Winkler's dinner table, a bit of advice: Keep one eye on your plate and the other on the actor's dog, Linus. The gigantic Great Dane has been known to snap up people's food – right off their plates!

"It walks up to the dining room table, looks at us, we say, 'Leave it, Linus. Leave it. Walk away, Linus,'" the star tells PEOPLE. Next thing you know, "[He] sucks the chicken leg right off the plate, no chewing involved."

Click on the video above to see the Children's Hospital star talk about how he and his wife rescued the oversized pooch from a parking lot.
