Dogs are loyal friends who are always there to offer a cuddle and many licks when you need them. Some families may bring a canine into their home for protection but that quickly changes when everyone in the house falls in love with it. Pups become another family member who is loved and respected by its human. Nonetheless, an animal’s instinct is never lost regardless of how domesticated it is. If it senses danger, a dog will put itself front and centre to protect the people it loves. It is hard to imagine what goes through these amazing animal’s mind but one thing is for sure, they do not think of their well-being when it comes to defending their pack. Even if that pack consists of people. Dibakar Raita had brought a Doberman home a couple months ago in the village of Sebekapur in India. His beautiful and elegant dog proved he was really the man’s best friend.This breed is athletic and strong. Although they make great guard dogs, Dobermans are social animals who easily fall in love with their humans.
The Doberman’s human were in their home when the loyal animal knew there was danger looming. Four cobras had slithered close to the house.
Cobras and other animals have been known to make their way into the houses and animal shed.
The Indian cobras lay their eggs between April and July.
Dibakar Raita found blood everywhere when he stepped outside his house. Despite the bites, the Doberman continued fighting until he killed all four of the cobras. Unfortunately, the canine did not make it.
“I’m shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family. I will remember him till our death. I pray God – May his soul rest in peace,” says Raita.
Hundreds of people lay flowers on the body. A burial procession took place in the village. Now the Doberman’s photo is circulating around the world, with people praising the animal’s ultimate sacrifice.
