A brave dog risked his life to save his owner from the venomous bite of a Cape Cobra snake that crept into their garage.
The loyal bull terrier attacked and killed the cobra, but it was bitten in the process.
Tracy Jakob explained that her dog, Dexter, is now receiving special care at the Tygerberg Animal Hospital after being in a critical condition.
Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:
I saw Dexter jump right next to the car on the passenger's side. When I got out the car, I saw the snake.— Tracy Jakob
Once he threw the snake out he looked back at me as if to say 'everything is okay now'. But the snake had already bitten him.— Tracy Jakob
