The story took place in Australia in the town of Cairns in the Svilicic family.
The couple have a small, 2-year-old daughter.
Recently, they decided to have a pet as well.
Once at the animal shelter, people stumbled upon an adult Doberman named Khan.
The poor dog was abandoned by his former owners, and Catherine and her husband accepted him into their family without hesitation.
Literally 4 days later, something happened that forever changed the attitude of the spouses towards their newly-made pet…
On this day, the dog played in the yard with the little daughter of his owners, Charlotte.
It seemed that the Doberman gets along well with the girl.
But then he suddenly bared his teeth and growled, and then grabbed the baby by the diaper and jumped aside.
The frightened woman immediately rushed to help her daughter, but it turned out that the dog did not attack her, but protected her!
Where just a couple of seconds ago the baby was frolicking, a dangerous poisonous snake was crawling.
Noticing it, the brave dog reacted in time, which saved Charlotte.
Unfortunately, the snake managed to bite him.
The girl turned out to be completely healthy and unharmed, and veterinary help was called for Khan in time.
The dog received the antidote and quickly recovered.
The couple simply cannot get enough of the new family member, who also turned out to be a real hero!
