Loyal Pit Bull ‘Leapt’ Into Action To Save His Human From Venomous Snake

Haley McCormack was heading for the porch of her Davidson County, Tennessee home when suddenly her dog Arlo sprang into action to save her. A poisonous copperhead snake hiding in the corner by the stairs escaped Haley’s attention. Arlo leaped at the snake as it reared back to strike and grabbed it by the tail, shaking it back and forth.

Arlo saved his human from the snake, but he was bitten in the face three to four times. Arlo was taken to BluePearl Pet Hospital in Nashville, where he received anti-venom, pain medication, and CBD oil. His neck and face were both swollen significantly; however, he is recovering well and is expected to recover fully.

“To think how much loyalty, and love he had for me, to risk his own life for mine, it’s really special,” McCormack told WTVF. “We’re both lucky to have each other for sure.”

Unfortunately, according to the hospital Arlo wasn’t the only dog treated at BluePearl Pet Hospital with a snake bite that day. In their region, according to the animal hospital, they’ve already seen over a dozen snakebite cases this summer alone.
