Dog dies of ‘snakebite’ while saving his owner from venomous snake

A dog is a faithful animal and we just can’t figure out how much love dog has for us. It is the only living thing on the planet that loves you more than he loves himself.

In fact, it is the most loyal animal, especially to human beings. They don’t talk but they understand people completely based on the body language and their behaviours.

In a gut-wrenching incident, a pet dog passed away in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu after it was bitten by a venomous snake while trying to protect its owner.

The heartreaking incident happened on Saturday morning when the owner was out on an usual morning walk to his agricultural fields.

The farmer, 50-year-old Natarajan is a resident of Nadu street in Vengarayankudikadu, Thanjavur district.

“Puppy was with me during my morning walk on Saturday, when I noticed a five feet long cobra in the bunds crawling towards me.

I froze at the sight of the snake and my pet dog began barking at the reptile. I took a step back and the snake tried to attack me and the puppy pounced on it in order to protect me,” Natarajan told TOI

The farmer also added that he carried puppy all the way back home where the dog’s condition got from bad to worse.
