Heroic dog sacrifices life to save baby from Cobra

Two heroic Dachshunds fought off a deadly Cobra to protect their family’s sleeping baby outside the family’s home in Kidapawan City, the Philippines.

The cobra was trying to enter the family’s front door but the pair of dogs worked together – biting its tail and dragging it away from the room where the girl was sleeping.

Incredible CCTV showed Moxie, a two-year-old white dachshund, immediately rushing over and pawing at the snake as it neared the property. The other dog Miley, aged four, then launched into a frenzied defence and picked up the dangerous monacled cobra in her jaws.

The determined guard dogs bit into the animal’s tail and dragged the snake back out onto the road.

Unfortunately, Miley, 4, did not survive being bitten by the venomous snake, while her sister, Moxie, 2, completely lost her eyesight.

he baby’s father, Jaime Selim, said he and his wife, Pauie, were at work at the time while his daughter was sleeping at home with a babysitter.

He said: ”My wife and I were out for work. When we arrived, our helper told us what happened and reviewed the cameras. We were shocked but also so proud of the dogs.”

Jaime added: “I can’t thank my dogs enough for protecting my baby Skye. We will miss them so much.”
