Dog Aggressively Grabs Baby, Then The Reason Why Becomes Clear.
Taking A Risk
Cheryl A. Ertelt
Despite his difficult past, Catherine had found a spot in her heart for the dog the moment she met him. His personality put her at ease. So, despite all she knew, she took him in and called him Khan. She was looking forward to introducing him to her seventeen-month-old baby girl. But she wasn’t going to necessarily let her guard down when the new dog started living in the house. So, since she was taking a risk, she decided to implement a few safety measures.
They Were Prudent About It
Catherine and her husband kept a close eye on Khan from the moment he moved into their home. Meanwhile, Charlotte absolutely loved her four-legged brother, and he was calm, gentle, and well-behaved when he was around her. At this point, Catherine was sure she had picked the right dog, but she remained vigilant when the baby and the dog were together. Then, her entire perspective changed on one fateful day.
He Was Acting Strangely
Four days after Khan became a part of the family, Catherine placed Charlotte in the yard so she could play with the dog. Everything seemed to be going okay, but then Khan started to act more aggressively towards Charlotte. Khan continued to push the baby girl with his muzzle, which had caught Catherine off guard. Then he behaved in a way that practically scared the living daylights out of her.
Was He Being Aggressive?
Khan grabbed the baby by her diaper and threw her three feet away. Catherine was mortified by what she had just witnessed, and for a second, she wasn’t sure what to do next. Then, she ran over and picked Charlotte up right away. She kind of expected Khan to begin attacking her too, but, the dog did something even more unusual. He yelped and ran back into the house. And that’s when Catherine saw the truth.
The True Threat

Catherine noticed a king brown snake slithering through the grass. She suddenly realized that Khan had seen the serpent and tried pushing the baby away, but when that failed, he threw her as far away as he could to protect her. "If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I would never have believed it," said Catherine. The dog might have been rough, but he saved the baby. Unfortunately, Khan didn’t escape without a scratch.
