A hero dog died after saving his owner's family from four cobras.

The doberman stood his ground, killing the deadly snakes before they could reach Dibakar Raita's family.

The mountain cobras had been trying to get into the family's house on Monday evening when they were challenged by the dog, who was guarding the entrance, according to the Deccan Chronicle.

He successfully managed to fight off the snakes who were attempting to escape to drier ground.



Witnesses said the fight went on for quite a while but the dog did not stop until he had killed each of the four snakes so they wouldn't harm the family.

The dog then collapsed from the poison in its blood from where the snakes had bit.

The family, who live in Sebekapur village of Gajapati district, is still in shock following the incident.

Dibakar told local reporters: 'I'm shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family. I will remember him till our death. I pray God – May his soul rest in peace.'

Villagers laid floral wreaths wreaths on the body of the dog and held a funeral procession before burying it.
