Size is no barrier to a dog determined to protect her family. Zoey, a Chihuahua, weighed only five pounds, but she rose to the occasion when needed.
One-year-old Booker West was playing in his grandparent’s backyard in Colorado when a rattlesnake struck at him! Zoey sprang into action, putting herself between the snake and the toddler. She sustained bites and was rushed to a veterinary hospital. Her head swelled and she almost lost an eye, but with anti-venom treatment, Zoey made a full recovery.
