Dog Took Off After A Little Boy. What He Did Next Totally Saved The Child.

Despite the fact that pit bulls extremely amiable and lovable dogs, many people are still under the impression that they are perilous and not safe to be around. We at Pitbulls Bible try to change that stereotype and to depict the faithfulness exhibited by these dogs. And here is yet another incident where a pit bull lab mix rescued a child from the attack of a snake; putting his life in danger.

Stacie Rae recently posted tales of a rescue by her brother’s dog, Hurley on facebook that went viral with umpteen likes and shares. She tells how vigilant Hurley was while on a walk with her brother that before his owner could hear and respond to the sound of a screaming child, Hurley rushed to the scene and saved a little boy from the nest of a copperhead snake.

Her facebook post says, “My brother was walking his pit bull lab mix, Hurley, in our neighborhood field around 10 pm. He walks him this late so he can let him off his leash so he can do what he loves to do, explore all the different smells. They heard a young kid scream and before my brother knew it, Hurley took off after the scream. With my brother close behind, he saw Hurley grab a copper head snake away from the little boy and fling it around, later found out he had killed it. The little boy ran to his mother’s vehicle and drove off so fast that my brother was unable to find out any information on the little boy. (We are assuming because they left so fast that he was bitten and being rushed to the ER) My brother then went on to call animal control and the Highland Village Cops showed up to check out the scene. They asked to take a look at Hurley to see if he was bitten. To my brothers surprise, he was bleeding, had a swollen neck and foaming from his mouth. Sure enough, they found two puncture wounds in his upper lip…”


Hurley was then taken to the hospital and is now recovering his wounds. It clearly proves that pit bulls never hesitate to rescue the ones in need even If that costs injuring themselves.
