Playing very comfortably, suddenly, a coral snake appeared. This is a poisonous snake, the body is red, yellow, black and white, alternating with each other.
Despite knowing that it was discovered, the coral snake still decided to move towards the children, intending to attack. Realizing the approaching danger, the faithful dog Zeus hurriedly got up, covered the three sisters, barked and attacked the venomous snake.
Gary and his family say their final goodbyes to their loyal dog Zeus.
The fight between the dog and the coral snake was extremely fierce, Zeus kept biting the coral snake’s body, throwing the snake away from the children. But because of that, Zeus was bitten by a poisonous snake 4 times.
In the end, Zeus also succeeded in biting the venomous snake, but at this time the snake venom had penetrated deeply into the poor dog’s body, causing Zeus’s face to swell.
Soon after, Zeus was taken to the emergency veterinary hospital by his owner. However, the doctor said that coral snakes are extremely poisonous snakes, their venom directly attacks and damages the respiratory system and cannot be saved. The next day, the brave dog Zeus died of respiratory failure.
Mr. Gary said that his family only adopted Zeus in January this year. He had hoped that Zeus and his children would grow up together, when tragedy struck. Zeus sacrificed himself again, saving the lives of his children. He and the whole family will forever remember this saving grace of Zeus.
