A family in Kidapawan City in the Philippines is full of gratitude after their two dogs successfully fought and killed a deadly snake which was trying to enter their home. As reported by the Sun, the cobra was making a “beeline” to the family’s front door last week – inside of the residence was the family’s baby girl.
Before the unthinkable happened, Moxie and Miley intervened – attacking the deadly cobra and preventing it from reaching the area where 12-month-old Skye was sleeping. Surveillance cameras captured the dachshunds frantically biting at the snake for approximately two minutes – finally the snake is killed and the baby inside is safe from harm. But the fight came at a cost to the protective dogs.
The venomous snake’s bites killed four-year-old Miley, and blinded two-year-old Moxie. The baby’s father stated, “I can’t thank my dogs enough for protecting my baby Skye.”
