Dogs will do just about anything for their beloved human best friends, and when one Australian canine companion saw his owner was inches from death, he didn’t hesitate to protect him.
The unnamed Australian man had been sitting in the shade on his patio in the backyard and drinking a beer while browsing his phone, which is normally a pretty safe activity. However, he had no idea that while looking at his phone, a deadly snake slithered right between his legs.
If the man had moved his legs, the eastern brown snake, which is the world’s second most poisonous snake, would have bitten him and left him fighting for his life in the hospital. Luckily for the man, however, his dog had spotted the danger and was ready to sacrifice his life to save his owner.
In the video captured by the home’s security camera, the dog starts chasing the deadly snake and barking at it to alert his owner of the danger. Thankfully, the man jumps away before being bitten and manages to pull his heroic dog to safety inside the house.
Watch the entire video below to see the incredible moment this man’s dog risked his life to protect his best friend.
