We have all heard the phrase, ‘A dog is a man’s best friend,’ and, time and again, some heroic, watchful dog proves it to be true, beyond what words can describe. A few weeks ago, we saw how Jacky saved his master from a fierce tiger. Such incidents go on to prove that no matter what, your four-pawed friend will indeed be there for you.
A Doberman, yet again, proved that dogs are indeed a loyal species. Dibakar Raita’s Doberman ʟᴏsᴛ his life saving his owner and his family from ᴘᴏɪsᴏɴᴏᴜs mountain snakes.

It all happened so quickly, Dad fell down wondering what was going on. He was growling ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇly and it looked like he was fighting something. He then saw Chief shaking what he thought was the rope in his mouth. But it wasn’t the rope used for tug-of-war…
To his surprise, it was a rattlesnake!
