Chihuahua Saves Baby From Rattlesnake

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.

    The diminutive Chihuahua is often looked upon as a toy, or a lap dog. While it is true that many are relegated to lap dog positions due to their delicate structure, make no mistake - these bright and feisty little dogs have no problem standing their ground and taking on anything a hundred times their size.

    It’s the size of their “heart” (Intestinal fortitude and innate desire to protect those they care about) that marks them as great dogs to have as a part of your family.

    While they have no say in which family they may be a part of, rest assured that once they are in the family, they are there heart and soul.
