Dog saves 7-year-old girl by doing ‘special thing’ even that makes itself hurt so bad

The story is about Haus, a 2-year-old German Shepherd.

Haus, a 2-year-old German Shepherd, was bitten many times after jumping between Molly DeLuca, 7, and a diamondback rattlesnake earlier this week.

He was bitten thrice by an eastern diamondback rattlesnake while protecting the girl.

More than a thousand individuals from all around the world have now rushed to his aid via a GoFundMe campaign, which has generated more than $47,000 to cover his vet fees.

Donya DeLuca stated that her daughter and grandma were in their garden when their German Shepherd was charged. Even though the snake continued stinging him, he didn’t give up. Three bites were identified by doctors.

“There’s no doubt he was protecting our family,” DeLuca said.

Haus has been in the hospital since Wednesday. The snake poisoned Haus with so much venom that his physicians had him on a continual drip of anti-venom, which DeLuca describes as an “unorthodox” approach because standard practice is to just provide one or two doses of the medication. The dog would have perished within hours if it hadn’t been for it.

‘He’s a goofy, happy go-lucky-dog,’ Donya DeLuca talked about Haus, 2.

Haus has got seven vials of antivenin thus far. Each vial might set you back up to $650. On top of that, he’s in the intensive care unit, which means he’ll need 24-hour care from three vets. On Friday, he also underwent a blood transfusion.

“I feel like the people of Tampa are so good to me,” DeLuca said.

The DeLucas hope that their story will inspire more people to adopt adult shelter pets.

According to doctors, Haus is slowly getting well. On Friday, he was able to walk. His wounds are healing, and he is drinking plenty of water. They believe he will live, but it will be a long journey back to health.

Molly is just thankful her best friend is getting better. “They are sweet, and kind, and nice because they’re caring about Haus,” she said.

Haus is expected to recover completely from the rattlesnake bites and poison.

DeLuca stated that they had raised far more than the amount required to pay Haus’ treatment. The family intends to contribute any remaining funds to Heidi’s Legacy Dog Rescue in Lithia, as well as maybe other dog rescues.
