Dogs are not only man’s best friend, but they can also be their hero and protector. They normally display their protective side in specific scenarios, like home intruders, or most definitely when someone tries to assault their owner…any someone.
Dad and Chief were playing a game of tug-of-war in the backyard when the dog suddenly jumped right at his feet while snarling and growling. It all happened so quickly, Dad fell down wondering what was going on.
He was growling ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇly and it looked like he was fighting something. Everything happened in a blink of an eye and Dad fell down. He was clueless about what was going on. He then saw Chief shaking what he thought was the rope in his mouth. But it wasn’t the rope used for tug-of-war…
To his surprise, it was a rattlesnake!
“Rattlesnakes are large, venomous snakes that are found throughout North and South America. The greatest concentration of them is in the Southwestern United States and in Northern Mexico. Arizona is home to 13 species of the rattler, more than any other state. The most ᴅɪsᴛɪɴᴄᴛive feature that these species share is the rattle.”
