They say rescue dogs are the best. But some people worry those traumatic pasts effecting how aggressive they could be.
That’s exactly what Catherine feared at first when Khan, a rescued doberman, began pushing around her little girl.
17-month-old charlotte was in the backyard playing with her new best friend, khan, a few days after the family adopted him.
Khan came from an abusive home, but Charlottes mum, Catherine was sure they could give Khan the home he deserved.
Catherine saw the large dog grab hold or little Charlottes diaper and she feared the dog was starting to show signs of aggression.
Catheriene ran over to help Charlotte, but not before the large dog tossed her 1 meter behind him. But it soon became clear to the scared mother that it was actually an act of heroism.
“Charlotte looked pretty shocked and Khan screamed, like he’d been stabbed,” . “I realised quickly it was a snake and Khan had been trying to get in between her and the snake before he threw her.”
Khan bravely took the bite and as soon as he made it inside, he collapsed and Catherine called for the vet right way.
Khan was given a shot of anti-venom that thankfully saved his life. No doubt these two will remain best friends.
