There is no animal more loyal to its owner than a dog. Dogs consider everyone in the family as a part of the pack and as such, they will risk life and limb for them.
Some even say that dogs are irrationally protective. Why? Because they don’t seem to mind the danger as long as they can protect their family.
One such loyal dog, or should we say, two such loyal dogs are featured in the video below. In the southern city of Kidapawan in the Philippines, a security camera managed to capture two brave dogs bravely fight off a deadly snake to stop it from entering the house where their owner’s baby, one-year-old Skye, is sleeping.
Dogs are innately aware of the danger that snakes bring. It is somehow wired into many animals that snakes are not friendly and are a danger to them and their family. However, when faced with the choice of protecting his family and saving himself, a dog is more than willing to go and put his life on the line to fight off the snake.
In the video, two adorable dogs can be seen playing in the yard of their owner’s house. Moments later, a snake slithers inside the gate. The snake, a deadly cobra, seems determined to get inside the house. The family’s two dogs, Miley and Moxie begin to attack the snake.
They nip and drag the snake away from Skye’s toys. They know that once the snake enters the house, Skye will be in danger. The two dogs take turns biting and dragging the snake away from the house. They grab the snake and thrash it around.
After about two minutes of fighting, the snake finally died. However, before it died, the snake managed to bite both dogs. The venom killed Miley moments later, and left Moxie alive, but blinded.
By risking and giving her life, Miley was able to protect her family from the snake. Rest well, brave doggo. There truly is no greater love and loyalty than that of a dog. Watch the deadly confrontation between the dogs and the snake in the video below.
