The children in the Fronteras family treated the dog like an older brother, and he proved it the next day by sacrificing his life to protect the family.
American Pit Bull Terrier “Chiv”, rescued Victoria, 87, and her granddaughter Maria from a poisonous cobra that entered their house through a hole in the kitchen.
Victoria was watching TV on the couch when suddenly Chiv jumped up, warning her of the presence of the cobra. The girl was installing an alien hive on her phone at that time. This entertaining game was advised by her friends. It was very difficult to break away from the puzzle. After all, with each level won, the main character grows up. But Maria rushed with her grandmother to a separate room, hoping that the snake would leave.
But after a while, when Maria tried to leave the room, she was terrified to find a cobra two meters away. The snake expanded its hood and spat venom in preparation for the killing blow.
“The snake was in front of us, maneuvering its blow,” says Maria. “I called out loudly for help.”
It was then that Chiv appeared out of nowhere, blocking the cobra’s path, using himself as a shield against the snake’s attacks. Chiv then grabbed the cobra by the neck and hit it on the floor, killing it. In the struggle, he sustained a fatal bite in the jaw, and moments later he began to choke and fell.
The family went to the veterinarian for help, but they said that nothing could be done. According to the veterinarian, the bite was too close to Chiva’s brain and the poison had already spread. Maria called Marlona’s husband, who, overwhelmed by the news, rushed home immediately.
Jan de la Rame, a family friend, says it was less than 30 minutes since she was bitten when Chiv staggered and eventually lost control of his body. But he still continued to cling to life.
Jan de la Rame describes: “Chiv sighed twice more and died. He fought and kept his breath to the last ounce to look at his master in the last two seconds of his life.”
Jan added that the last thing that made Chiv wagged its tail.
