Parents Horrified When Doberman Grabs Child In Its Mouth - Then They Realize Why

A Doberman is a hero after he rescued a small child from a dangerous situation. The parents, who had recently taken in the abandoned dog, were amazed.

Catherine Svilicic and her family took Khan, a Doberman, after he had been abused and abandoned. Some might think to take in a full-grown Doberman with potential issues wasn't smart for a family with a 17-month-old baby, but it worked out better than expected.

Charlotte, Svilicic's little girl, was playing outside with Khan. Svilicic was watching and noticed the dog suddenly became aggressive and started pushing the baby.

He then grabbed Charlotte by the diaper and threw her across the yard.

Svilicic jumped in to intercede but then discovered why the dog had suddenly changed his attitude. A venomous snake was heading for the little girl.

Khan was bitten by the snake when he got between it and Charlotte to protect the tot. The family rushed him to a vet and anti-venom serum were administered. Khan is now recovering.

If it hadn't been for Khan, Charlotte would have been bitten. The Svilicics are so grateful to the pup, and they plan to make it up to him for the rest of his life.
