Loyalty and endless love, that's how we know dogs.
Just like Zeus, an 8-month-old Pitbull, who laid down his life to protect his owner's kids from a poisonous snake.
According to News18, Zeus sustained snake bites after fighting and killing a coral snake.
The man and his kids were in their family home in Sumter County, Florida when the incident occurred.
Remembering the moment when he saw Zeus after taking on the snake, Gary said:
I knew when he first came in that something was wrong, and [it] was very traumatic because I knew he was dying. Pit bulls are the most loyal dog I know of, and I’ve had a lot of different animals in my life.
Zeus, who was born in January this year, was taken to a veterinarian doctor but died a day after the attack.
