A Doberman in India is being hailed as a hero for his valiant defense of his owners. One night, a Doberman that belonged to a family of eight was guarding the perimeter of their home in the village of Sebekapur under the Raygada Block of the Gajapati District in Odisha, India. As usual, the dog dutifully went around the property.
At some point, the dog saw that there were snakes crawling on the patio. This was alarming. Various reports have pointed out that snakes kill more than 45,000 people a year in India. In this case, they were especially dangerous because the snakes were all venomous cobras.
The Doberman is an excellent guard dog.
Thus, the dog began his bloody fight against the venomous reptiles. During his encounter with the deadly snakes, the family members said that the Doberman would not back down. Even when he was bitten by the snakes, the dog stayed tough and kept lunging at the snakes to bite them.
The dog killed the snakes one by one. He only stopped to rest when he was sure that his owners were no longer threatened by the snakes. Unfortunately, the noble dog had gotten too many bites from the snakes.
Scary: Imagine these reptiles in your home.
Shortly after his heroic act, the dog died from the venom in his body. The dog’s owner, Dibakar Raita, was heartbroken. He related that even if he only bought the dog a few months ago, the animal had proven to be fiercely loyal.
“I’m shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family. I will remember him till our death. I pray God — May his soul rest in peace,” the distraught Dibakar said.
The devoted dog’s heroism has captured the attention of people all over the Gajapati District. As such, hundreds of people flocked to the village of Sebekapur to pay their respects to him. People brought wreaths and flowers at the funeral procession and burial of the dog.
We should all be so lucky to have such loyal pets in our lives.

Shelter Pleads For Expert To Help Save Neglected Sheep With 90 Lbs Of Wool
Chris the Sheep was spotted carrying around 90 pounds of merino wool. Expert Ian Elkins, a four-time national shearing champion, took the job and set a Guinness Book Of World Records for his feat.

Smart Dog Dresses As Toy Elephant Has Adorable Routine With Her Dad
Couple days before Halloween, and this tiny dog has already won the holiday.
A tiny dog dressed as an elephant is charming dog lovers with not only her costume but her adorable routine with her dad. With her big ears and trunk, Tammy the dog appeared at the Halloween costume contest in Florida.
She’s walking behind her human when she suddenly stops, lies down and refuses to walk any further. But it’s not a protest for having to wear the costume, it’s because she needs to be “wound back” up. Her human comes over and uses a “key” to wind her up so she can keep walking.
“This video is of Tammy the dog winning Halloween costume contest at a dog event here at a bar in Tampa called the Strut, Wag and Rock 2018. She is a wind-up elephant toy. She keeps ‘falling’ because she needs to be wound up to stay moving. At the end of the video, you can see her cute face!”...
Dog Cries With Relief After Seeing Men Coming to Rescue Her From a 50-Foot Well
There seemed to be hope and relief in her voice when she saw them.
Dogs can't verbalize, but that doesn't mean they cannot communicate with us. The various sounds they produce---the barking, growling, howling, whimpering, or whining---all have meanings. They aren't just noises; it's their way of expressing their needs, wants, and feelings to us.
Take, for instance, this dog named Ruby. The pooch fell down a 50-foot well and needed help. The villagers near Udaipur heard her cries and called Animal Aid India. The rescuers immediately responded.
