The Dog Who Saved a Little Girl From a Rattlesnake
Undoubtedly, there are countless people who are taken aback daily by the love and protection that dogs provide to the smallest members of their families.
The Story of Molly DeLuca and the Rattlesnake Attack
Hans to the rescue
Hans never left her side. Therefore, he could predict the snake’s attack before it happened. Neither hesitantly nor lazily, without even thinking of the harm that he could be putting himself in, he threw himself against the snake to prevent it from biting his little friend.
At first, he did not manage to immobilize the snake. Yet, Hans refused to give up his efforts. The snake bit him three time. But he would not stop until the reptile fled.
Molly was very frightened. Next, she ran to look for her mother. Luckily, her mom realized that Hans was badly wounded. They immediately picked him up and ran to the vet’s office. There, the doctor claimed that there was a lot of poison in his blood.
If the poison managed to reach his vital organs, it was very likely that Hans would die. Molly’s family could not allow it. He had saved their daughter’s life! That’s why they decided to ask for help by sharing their story.
Hope for Hans
It was not long before hundreds of people were donating money to their cause. They were able to raise $15,000 dollars, which was the cost of the antidote that would keep Hans alive.
Despite suffering kidney damage due to the large amounts of venom in his system, Hans’ family was able to treat him in time thanks to the money they raised. Thankfully, he is currently home and recovering favorably.
So, there you have it. A beautiful story of love, friendship and loyalty that proves to us yet once again that the love animals have for us knows no end. That’s why we all need to respect them and reward their good intentions by taking care of them and giving them a home filled with peace and love.
