Pit Bull saves 2 women from deadly cobra, dies wagging his tail.

Pit Bull saves 2 women from deadly cobra, dies wagging his tail - 2007-03-01

Quote:
The children in the Fronteras household refer to their dog as "kuya" ("big brother"), and he certainly proved it on the day he sacrificed his life to protect the family.

On Monday, Feb. 12 at around 2 p.m., "Chief", an American Pit Bull Terrier, rescued Liberata la Victoria, 87, and her granddaughter Maria Victoria Fronteras from a deadly cobra which had entered their house through an opening in the kitchen.

Liberata la Victoria and Chief had been watching TV on the sofa when suddenly Chief jumped up and alerted her to the presence of a cobra less than 10 feet away. Maria Victoria rushed in and pulled her grandmother into a separate room, hoping the snake would leave.

But when Maria Victoria later emerged from the room, she was terrified to find the cobra poised about two feet away. Equally startled, the cobra expanded its hood and appeared to be spitting venom as it prepared to strike.

"The snake was in front of us, maneuvering a deadly attack," says Maria Victoria. "I screamed out loud to ask for help." 1

That's when from "out of nowhere", Chief dashed between the cobra and the two women, using himself as a shield against the cobra's attacks. Chief then seized the cobra by the neck and slammed it into the floor, killing it.

But for Chief it was a Pyrrhic victory. In the struggle, he sustained a fatal bite to the jaw, and moments later he began gasping for breath and collapsed.

The family sought the help of a veterinarian, but they were told that nothing could be done. According to the vet, the bite was too close to Chief's brain, and the venom had already spread. Maria Victoria called her husband Marlone who, stunned by the news, rushed home immediately.

Ian de la Rama, a friend of the family, says it was less than 30 minutes from the time Chief had been bitten that he "went wobbly and lost control of his organs," 2 urinating and defecating uncontrollably. Yet he still kept clinging to life.
It wasn't until Marlone arrived that Chief finally let go.

Ian de la Rama describes, "Chief gave his two deep breaths and died. He was fighting and saving his last ounces of breath to see a glimpse of his master for the last two seconds of his life." 1

Ian adds that the last thing Chief did as he gazed up at Marlone was wag his tail.


"You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us."
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
Not even going to lie. I teared up when I read this. Then it got worse when I saw the pic

American Pit Bull Terriers, and dogs in general, are just amazing. Best. Dogs. Ever.

Thats really sad , i dont like the pic was really sad I cant imagine taking a pic of my dog after he passed that isnt a vision I would want to remember id rather remember them in the good times. It really does show how this breed really is, the part where he was wagging his tail at the end is so typical of them . I remember patching rocky up when he was wounded and he would do the same just sit there and wag his tail even though you know they have to be in pain they are tough lil dogs. Best family dog out there IMO and this is just more proof of that . Great post .

i was just reading something like this, just double checked it was the same story but yours had a bit more detail. its crazy what these dogs will do for their families. its saddening, but its comforting to know that something you care so much about and you give so much to love and protect will do the samething for you you know?

I know this is a fairly old story but my gosh does it make me cry just by reading the title alone...If you don't call that loyalty and a great dog, I don't know what is.
