Parents Horrified When Doberman Grabs Little Girl. Suddenly Realize Why..

For a split second, one mother must have thought adopting a Doberman was the biggest mistake of her life. When she saw the huge dog become aggressive and grab her toddler, she was terrified. Upon investigation, she discovered that the dog wasn't dangerous-- he was a hero.

Catherine Svilicic was watching Charlotte, her 17-month-old daughter, play in the yard with their newly adopted dog. Khan, a Doberman, had been abused and abandoned by his previous owner and the Svilicic family had just taken him in.

Svilicic became worried when Khan appeared to turn aggressive. He began pushing Charlotte around the yard. he then grabbed the girl by the diaper and threw her across the yard. The horrified mother ran to intervene, but that's when she saw what was really going on.

A poisonous snake had slithered onto the property and was right where the little girl was playing. Khan instinctively knew the snake was dangerous. He wasn't being aggressive; he was being protective. When Khan threw Charlotte, it was to save her from the snake bite. Khan was bitten instead.

Thanks to an anti-venom shot from the vet, Khan is recovering. And thanks to Khan, Charlotte is unharmed. The Svilicics are happy now to have Khan as a loving member of the family and plan to give the dog the good life he deserves.
