Pit bulls save children from venomous snake

Zayden Cruz 4 loves on one of the two family pit bulls credited with saving his life from a venomous snake

Her grandchildren, 4-year-old Zayden and 1-year-old Mallory, are alive because her two beloved canines stepped in at the right time.

The dogs barked at the snake to leave, causing the serpent to strike.

Together, Slayer and Paco battled the snake.

Both dogs are doing just fine.

Butt rushed the dogs to Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners Hospital in Brandon.

"We needed to get the anti-venom in them very quickly in order for them to get a good prognosis", Dr. Shelby Loos explained.

"We give them medicine for pain and make them as comfortable as possible".

And, that's exactly what happened, thanks to quick fundraising from the rescue group Frankie's Friends.

"They don't ask for anything - all they want is your love, so it's very hard to see them in need, and not be able to do a whole lot for them", says Melissa Butt, the grandmother of the children who were playing in the yard.

"They're great, gentle boys who put themselves in harm's way to protect the grandchildren", Butt told pet charity Frankie's Friends, who helped the family pay for the dogs' medical treatments.

Slayer is recovering from deep wounds to his face and snout at a veterinarian hospital, wagging his tail in good spirits. After coming to the area, Butt said she saw a large snake - later identified as a poisonous copperhead.

"I know my dogs are heroes and without a doubt saved the lives of my grandchildren", Butt told CBS News.
