Dog Grabs Girl And Throws Her - Parents Horrified, Realize Why

Seventeen-month-old Charlotte Svilicic owes her life to her Doberman “Khan.” The dog, which her parents had adopted less than a week prior, saved the child from a deadly king brown snake, according to The Courier Mail.

The child was playing in the garden of their Australia home when the snake approached her. The dog reportedly grabbed the child by the back of her diaper and threw her out of the snake’s reach. The poor pup was bitten by the snake in the act, but recovered after getting a dose of antivenom.

"Charlotte looked pretty shocked and then Khan screamed,” the child’s mother, Catherine Svilicic, said. "I realized quickly it was a snake and Khan had been trying to get in between her and the snake before he threw her."

She said she wouldn’t have believed it, if she didn’t see it for herself, The Courier Mail reports

"If Khan wants a gold bowl, Khan gets it,” she said. “We owe him for the rest of his life.”’

Apparently, being a hero is in Khan’s genes. The dog's breeder, Kerry Kinder the owner of Doberinling Boarding Kennels, said his grandfather also saved a child in similar circumstances. Kinder bred Khan then rescued him after discovering he was being mistreated.

"He was starving for attention and wanted to be loved because he came from an abused home, so I’m not surprised about what he has done at his new home,” Khan said.
