What a fantastic story about Haus, the heroic German Shepherd, who saved a 7 year-old girl from a rattlesnake attack. This super loving family dog, received 3 rattlesnake bites while saving his 7 year old “sister” from the snake. For risking his life and being a hero, he has obtained the Heroic Dog Award.
Haus, the Heroic German Shepherd Awarded
Last week, Haus had been fighting for his life because of the bites. However, thanks to well-wishers, he is currently at home with his family continuing his recovery. After receiving round the clock care for the rattlesnake bites, Haus was released from the animal hospital Thursday. He was bitten a week ago in the backyard of the family, after throwing himself between the snake and 7 year old Molly DeLuca.
As Haus made his recovery, donations poured in to help him. People raised more than $50,000 via a GoFundMe page put up to cover his medical costs. Thanks to all who helped saved his life, and thanks to Haus, the hero.
