When the parents discovered Shiloh lunging at Bryson while playing in the yard one day, they became concerned. For a second, the Holloways had their doubts about Shiloh’s intentions. But then they noticed a huge Copperhead snake slithering past their son’s foot! Shiloh didn’t seem to care about his own well being and lunged at the snake.

Shiloh quickly used his body to protect his brother from the snake, which then slithered into the yard. The serpent escaped the yard but the dog became quivering and fell to the ground. The parents understood that their brave dog had been bitten by a poisonous snake. They rushed Shiloh to the hospital, where he was given appropriate antibiotics that helped save his life.
