Mom is without words as she witnesses her dog save her daughter’s life.
It’s hard to know what to expect with a new dog around your child. Catherine Svilicic and her husband had only had their Doberman for 4 days when it started acting strange around their daughter Charlotte. Catherine saw her new dog Khan acting aggressive and snarling around her 17 month old daughter—Charlotte.
“Khan was really concentrating and was acting aggressive towards Charlotte and kept trying to nudge her but it wasn’t working, so he grabbed her by the back of the nappy and threw her more than a metre,” Ms Svilicic said. “If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I would never have believed it.”
Khan suddenly sunk his teeth into Charlotte’s diaper and threw her behind him as a King Brown Snake came out from under the house. The snake, startled by the movement lunged out and bit Khan’s leg, near the foot.
The poison from the snake, deadly, affected Khan as he howled, and ran back in the house before he collapsed.
Charlotte was saved that day in the eyes of her parents who see Khan as a hero. She could have died, but Khan stepped in.
Khan was rushed to the vet and survived the poison. Luckily there wasn’t enough poison to kill him before he got help.
Just another example of mans best friend protecting their owners.
