It can be discussed whether we really deserve dogs and their unwavering love – such as this heroic dog that sacrifices itself to save a baby’s life.
Moxie and Miley, the family's two dogs, were the unsung heroes who stood together, united in a terrifying confrontation against the cobra.
The serpent was determined, slithering menacingly close to where baby Skye was blissfully unaware of the imminent danger.
It was a tense two-minute struggle, a dance between life and death. The dogs, though outmatched in venom, were superior in courage.
They dragged the snake away from where Skye was sleeping, ensuring the safety of their youngest family member.
Although Moxie was triumphant, she did not escape unscathed. She survived but lost its eyesight.
Sadly, Miley, the black dog, succumbed to the deadly bites, breathing her last as a warrior who had fulfilled her duty.
Cobras are among the most venomous snakes in the world, armed with a potent neurotoxic venom.
A single bite can cause paralysis, respiratory failure, and eventually, death.
The venom’s fast-acting nature and the severity of the physical responses it induces make it extremely dangerous.
