Heroic Hound: Fearless Dog Confronts Poisonous Snakes to Save Owner

A dog is the most reliable friend you can have. He is always willing to intervene to protect you, even if it means putting himself at risk.

This is what a brave dog recently demonstrated after defending his young owner from a rattlesnake, even if it meant being bitten himself.

Alex Loredo, 18, of Harbison Canyon, California, is the owner of Marley, a Labrador. He first took in the dog to help him lose weight after suffering health problems, and the two have been best friends ever since.

Last month, he was very lucky to have Marley by his side, as the teenager was in serious danger.

He told KGTV that he was outside his house when he heard a “loud snap” and came face to face with a huge rattlesnake. About a foot and a half long.

Alex claims he “freaked out” and was bracing himself for a nasty snake bite… until Marley arrived.

“But before I could turn around, Marley stepped between us,” Alex recalls. “Marley basically pushed me out of the way.” He barked repeatedly at the snake.

Unfortunately, Marley’s boldness put him in danger, as the snake bit him twice, once on the tongue and once on the neck. Alex reacted quickly and ran to save his dog’s life from the poison.

“There was blood everywhere and Marley collapsed to the ground, screaming in pain,” Alex wrote. “I got scared and took him to the nearest vet, which was 5 miles away.”

“I was terrified and tried to stay calm and think quickly because time was not on our side.”

Marley was taken to a pet hospital 25 miles away and given two poison injections. She had to stay in the hospital for several days and the vets feared her tongue would have to be amputated.

Fortunately, Marley was unharmed and has already been released from the hospital to be reunited with his happy owner.

“If Marley hadn’t been there, I would have been bitten and it would have been really bad,” Alex explained to KGTV. “Marley is a true hero.” They are my best friends. “I’m not sure what I would do without him.”

Marley’s procedures were expensive, but Alex was willing to pay for them to save the life of his best friend. Fortunately, GoFundMe donations paid the bills. The fundraising page surpassed its goal of $8,000.

Marley is an unsung hero. This shows how devoted and protective dogs can be to their people. We are so glad he is safe now!
