Zoey the Chihuahua is definitely not a lap dog.
This five-pound dog has the courage of a lion. When Zoey saw a rattlesnake lunge at her owner’s one-year-old grandson, the bulldog came out of her.
The child was in the backyard when a snake slithered up to the toddler and struck. Zoey jumped in between the child and the snake and took all of the bites instead.
She was treated for her bites and is doing well now. Zoey’s owner says that “These little bitty dogs, they just don’t really get credit.”
Zoey, you definitely deserve a gold star and a rub on the belly for your brave heroism.
