Dog saves kids from snake in Australia

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

A courageous family dog is being called a hero after he sprang into action to protect two girls from a snake.

The dog's name is River and he wasted no time when he saw the reptile headed straight for 7-year-old Michelle and her 2-year-old sister. The girls had been playing on their swing set when River spotted the snake near them, and attacked.

Michelle said, "River came bursting out and jumped on the snake."

River suffered a paralyzing bite from the snake but was been treated and is expected to make a full recovery.
