The owner, Dibakar Raita of Sebekapur village was surprised the Doberman protected his family with his life. He had only had the dog for a few months, according to Deccan Chronicle.
“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,” said an emotional Dibakar.
The loyal pet fought the snakes for hours and managed to kill them all before succumbing to the poison minutes after his victory. Reptiles and other animals sneaking into homes in this area is nothing news, so it’s amazing the dog was their to prevent an even bigger tragedy.
Multitudes of nearby villages came to the village as news spread. Flowers were laid out on the body of the dog before a funeral was held, ending in his burial.
