Taking home a rescue dog and giving it a forever home can be one of the most fulfilling moments of anyone’s life. These animals often come from bad homes and have a history of abuse, so to finally give them room to run, good food to eat, and lots of love is truly a gift better than any other.

So, when a family in Australia decided to take an abused Doberman named Khan into their home, they couldn’t be happier. The poor Doberman had had a hard life growing up, so mama Catherine promised she was going to do everything she could to make sure that he felt like a part of their family.

But on the fourth day in his new forever home, Catherine saw the Doberman acting strange around her 2-year-old daughter named Charlotte. He was pushing her around in the backyard, and before Mom could do anything, her little girl went flying through the air.


Mom must have been horrified for those first few seconds, but things got even stranger when Khan let out a yelp that sounded like he had been stabbed. That’s when Mom saw the unthinkable…

He seemed more aggressive than she’d ever seen.

Mom knew that Khan had been abused in his previous home, and suddenly, there must have been a fear. Khan was pushing the little girl around and snapping his teeth.

Before Mom had the chance to react, Khan grabbed Charlotte by her diaper and threw her a few feet across the yard. But suddenly, Mom heard a horrible yelp of pain.

Khan had been bitten in the paw by a king brown snake. Australia is home to some of the world’s deadliest animals, and this snake’s venom can kill a human easily. A girl of Charlotte’s age and size could have had potentially deadly consequences.

But Khan, bitten in the paw, kept the snake at bay. He stood between his little girl and the deadly creature. Barking at it angrily, in spite of the venom coursing through his veins, this amazing dog scared away the snake before collapsing.

The story was so amazing of a dog’s love and bravery, that soon enough his story was going viral. He was in news stories all around the world and it’s no surprise why people were naming him “Khan the Wonder Dog”.

    I first would like to give you such respect for homing a rescue dog,they are the only type of dogs we have homed.
    Khan is and hopefully is still alive and well,and I must say what an amazing outstanding dog he is to have bonded with your daughter in such a short time,and how brave your little girl was having been face to face with this snake you must have been petrified and terrified seeing your daughter being flung around by khan,then the amazement of finding out that Khan had actually been protecting your daughter,was amazing,the bond between them must have been outstanding natural like a father protecting one of his own,I am so amazed but so happy and relieved for you all that no harm came to your precious daughter,and hopefully God bless no issues with nightmares and traumas,but also I hope Khan recovered from the snake bite such an amazing outstanding dog obviously ment to have been picked by yourselves an amazing outstanding heart filled family and may God bless each and every one of you all including khan,and I do so hope the snake was destroyed as any dangerous reptile or animal of any kind should be destroyed just as a person would be put in prison on life sentence or death row.We all need to learn to live with one another this is true,but when it becomes a hazard to another life ,then the problem needs to be destroyed humanly but forever.I wish you and your family well,also super Khan,Thank goodness for heroes of all kinds.regards and God bless Joanne Packham from Kent UK.💖🙏🙏💙
