If you have a pup at home, then you may understand the extent of a dog's loyalty. It may seem annoying when they follow you around or cry when you leave the house, but most dogs would do just about anything for their human. In fact, this pup was just a foster dog when they showed just how loyal they were to the human that was taking care of them.
While spending time on a friend’s property during a party near Enchanted Rock in Texas, Jane decided that it would be a perfect time for a hike. So, accompanied by her friend Matthew Tilley and Nellie, Jane set out for an adventure.
While on the trail, Jane, Matthew, and Nellie encountered a sinister creature. A creature that just so happens to be well-known for its ability to kill unsuspecting hikers.
"We were hiking, and I saw the snake two feet from me and screamed. Nellie ran over and went for it. I kept screaming to try and stop the fight, but then Matthew was smart enough to throw his jacket on the snake and pull Nellie away," said Jane.
Rattlesnake venom is extremely poisonous and it doesn’t take long to do its work. Knowing that Nellie didn’t have much time, Jane immediately rushed her to the veterinarian.
Apparently, Nellie was the first of many animals that will be seen this season. "Pedernales Animal Hospital said it was the first bite of the season, and this vet keeps 24 vials of antivenom because he gets a case a day when the season starts," said Jane.
Unfortunately, Nellie is still looking for her forever home, but with the help of the Final Frontier Rescue Project, the place where she is being fostered, she should have no trouble finding a kind human to love her. "She has scars around her neck that suggest she may have been tied up on a wire as a puppy. It's taken her a long time to overcome the emotional scars of past abuse, but she has come such a long way,” said Jane.
