A young mother saw how her 17-month old little baby was grabbed and hurled by her dog and she was totally shocked. But after a closer examination, she made an incredible discovery of why the loyal dog did such act.
A New Dog Arrived
Catherine Svilicic had never expected that her new adopted Doberman will act in such abusive manner towards her little child. She was totally trusted that her baby and the dog could live together in harmony.
Doberman’s Unexpected Behavior Towards A Defenseless Baby
After adopting the dog, Catherine could never suspect that the dog would display an aggressive behavior. She had a slight concern about the new Doberman because he was a rescued dog.
It’s well known that rescued dogs have very traumatic pasts that can cause troublesome behaviors. Still, she decided to adopt a new Doberman hoping that he would adapt and join the family without any inconvenience.
Doberman Breed Is Considered Dangerous
Some breeds of dogs are considered to be “dangerous.” Naturally, most domesticated dogs can playfully bite their owner’s hand or jump towards them to lick their faces as a sign of pure affection. However, there are certain breeds such as Pitbulls and Dobermans who would represent a potential threat to a person’s safety. Let’s say that the possibilities of these types of dogs to act properly when owners are around are lesser than the rest.
Nevertheless, The Family Decided To Adopt a Dog To Grow Up With The Baby
The Svilicic family decided unanimously to adopt a new dog after Catherine had given birth to her baby Charlotte. She wanted her new child would grow up with a partner at her side to have good experiences with.
The Adopted Doberman
Catherine contacted the local dog shelter to see if they would have any dog that could call her attention. She was interested in one of the Doberman Pinschers and chose the biggest of the group. Then she named the dog Khan and the staff informed her that Khan had a very troublesome past.
Khan’s New Family Gave Him A New Friend
Even knowing the possible risks, Catherine had no inconvenience to bring Khan to her home and meet his new partner, Charlotte (who was 17 months old). Nobody could guarantee that the adult Doberman will have a perfect behavior, especially after has suffered from abuse from his previous owners.
Curiously, the adult dog was scheduled to be euthanized in the following week before Catherine adopted him. He was just saved from a sad fate.
It Was Normal Day And The Dog Was Playing With The Little Baby
After 4 days of being adopted, the Doberman was playing with Charlotte in the house’s garden. There was nothing for the family to worry about.
While Playing With The Baby Something Suddenly Happened
While the Doberman and the toddler were running and playing around, a shocking incident happened. Khan took the child by its diaper, flipped and then tossed her across the grass. In consequence, Charlotte flew a yard away and slammed on the ground. It was a traumatic moment for everyone.
Catherine Was Washing The Dishes When She Saw The Incident
Catherine saw the entire incident from the kitchen. She felt absolute terror when she saw Charlotte flying and slamming into the ground. She thought for some bizarre reason Khan saw the toddler as a threat.
The shocked mother would need to intervene but unfortunately, this was just the beginning of something worse.
Khan Grabbed The Baby’s Diaper A Tossed Her Like a Doll
Kahn softly pushed the toddler like he wanted to start a fight but Charlotte continued to innocently walk around. Then, what it seemed in a fit of rage, he grabbed the baby’s diaper with his teeth and started to violently toss her around the garden. Catherine recalled, “Khan was treated her like she was a rag doll.”
Charlotte Was Not Scared At All
Incredibly, Charlotte was not crying but seemed very surprised by Khan’s reaction. Catherine rushed over to rescue her poor baby who was confused by what just happened but suddenly, Khan barked and fell to the ground.
The family was more confused about what was going on.
The Baby Was Safe But The Dog Was Injured
Catherine ran to check her baby to find any injury or signs of pain. But something was terribly wrong with Khan that fell to the ground completely lifeless.
Catherine had no idea was going on but her instinct told her that the Doberman was actually protecting Charlotte from a danger. It seems that Khan’s heroic act left him injured and needed immediate medical care. His time was running out.
Khan Didn’t Move And Needed To See A Doctor
Khan needed medical attention as soon as possible because of a wound he had. Khan was on the verge of death because he decided to protect his beloved friend, Charlotte.
The Doberman was strong but succumbed to the effects of the poison that could kill any animal of any size. After Khan collapsed on the ground he was unable to move again and began to have difficult to breathe.
Catherine realized what really happened and knew that she had to move fast to save the adopted dog.
Catherine Didn’t Panic And Took Khan to The Hospital
Catherine picked up Charlotte and handed the little girl to one of her family members. Once her baby was totally safe, she checked Khan to see the damage and what she saw was not good: Khan had his tongue hanging out his mouth, motionless and with no life signs.
Then Catherine decided to take Khan and carried him to her car. She started the car and drove as fast as she could to the local vet.
Arriving At The Hospital
Catherine drove very fast on the streets to get Khan to the vet as soon as possible. She cried on the road because of his bravery. After he had put his own body to protect Charlotte, she was now doing the same for him.
“I never imagined I was able to drive well at that speed. I suppose adrenaline helped me a lot to do so,” she said. After driving at an incredibly fast but dangerous speed, they arrived at their destination, she took Khan in her arms and ran to the hospital asking for help. The nurses and doctor came immediately to check Khan.
What Was Khan’s Status?
Thirty minutes later of their arrival, Khan was sent to the E.R and the vet who attended the Doberman returned to speak with Catherine in his office. When Catherine saw the doctor, she ran to him and asked many questions in a desperate manner. Is Khan going to be Ok?
Unfortunately, the doctor said, “We don’t know yet. We did what we could, but now his body has to fight the poison.”
“The anti-venom certainly will help him but we don’t know to what extent. The best thing is that you come back tomorrow morning,” the doctor added. That wasn’t exactly the answer that Catherine wanted to hear.
The Next Morning
Finally, the next morning had arrived and Catherine rose from bed at 7:30 AM after a restless night. She attended her family first and took care of some tasks before driving again the same route she took yesterday but at a slower speed.
Catherine just wanted to arrive at the clinic as soon it was open. In fact, she was the first person in the waiting room. She had prepared herself mentally waiting for the worst scenario. So she entered the office of the vet to know the results. The moment of truth has come.
What Was The Real Threat On That Day?
Before knowing if Khan would survive, Catherine discovered that there was a dangerous snake living in her house’s backyard. She could never imagine that something so dangerous was living under her nose. Thanks to Khan, her baby and even herself were saved from being poisoned by the snake.
So the truth became clearer about what happened that day: Khan was not trying to attack Charlotte. On the contrary, he was doing anything possible to save her life. It turns out that the innocent baby was close to a Mulga, a very dangerous and poisonous snake, and then Khan saw the real danger that his beloved friend was facing and wanted to rescue her.
A Lethal Snake On The Loose
The Mulga’s poison is so lethal that after some minutes an adult human can be killed by a single bite of this dangerous and aggressive snake.
That means that Charlotte wouldn’t have any chance of survival against the Mulga’s venom. Such poison would have flowed through the bloodstream quicker due to her small size.
Khan the Protector
In an act of bravery, Khan shielded Charlotte from the Mulga’s attack. He saved her from a certain death. Khan always stayed at Charlotte’s side, received a lethal bite, and scared the snake away.
Despite having a past life full of mistreatment and abuse, Khan never hesitated to protect his new family.
The Moment of Truth
Catherine just wanted to know if Khan would be able to return home. The vet continued explaining how Khan was recovering step by step. He was still weak but there was no risk of a total paralysis produced by the Mulga’s venom.
In plain words, the anti-venom did its job. And even better, Khan would have a complete recovery. The vet detailed that Khan survived the Mulga’s bite because the snake couldn’t inject the full amount of venom into Khan’s body. On the contrary, the brave dog couldn’t survive.
Catherine was very happy to know that the whole family could be reunited again. In fact, everyone was ecstatic when heard the news from the hospital. Now, Catherine aims to keep her family and Khan safer than ever.
The brave dog can’t wait to rejoin his new family and continue protecting Charlotte as always.
Scientists Are Reviewing Household Amazon Products, And We Can’t Stop Giggling
Amazon is a great place for getting just about anything. But if you don’t read the reviews, you might not get what you pay for. If you’re one of those people who does this on every item that you’re thinking about purchasing, then you might want to hold on to your seat because you’re about to laugh so hard that you might not be able to compose yourself.
Scientists started reviewing products on Amazon, and you might be surprised what common household items can be used for. Who would have known that people who work in the sciences could have such great sense of humor?
We all know what paintbrushes are used for, but they might be good for people who work in neuroscience. This scientist says that these artist paintbrushes can be good for manipulating 20-micron sections of bird or fish brains in a cryostat of -20 degrees Celsius. No one would have guessed.
Vaseline is often used as a moisturizer for dry skin, but no one would have guessed that it can be mixed with skunk essence to lure black bears into a snare. According to this scientist, she only wished it would come in larger sizes because she wanted to order large amounts of it. Who would have known that such a common item had such a specialized use?
According to this scientist, colored nail polish is an essential item for any tropical first aid kit. You can use it to clear out baby maggots. Just apply it to the larvae and leave it there until it dies. After that, you can just pull it out of the area. According to
this scientist, it can be a great way to keep track of infestations throughout the season. That’s good to know in case I need to go trekking through the Amazon.
While colored nail polish can be great for people who need to do field work in a tropical hellhole, clear nail polish can be great for sealing coverslips on microscope slides. But this scientist warned people not to use the sparkly kind. Makes sense.
We all know that it’s called “superglue” for a reason. It can be used for anything from fixing a broken coffee mug to reattaching something from a sculpture or figurine, but no one would have thought that it can be used for attaching RFID tags and radio transmitters to bees. The only problem is that an angry bee can instantly attach to human skin. While it would no doubt be an unpleasant experience, you can’t stop laughing at this one.
According to this scientist, a gas-powered leaf blower/mulcher from Ryobi can make a great way to get insect samples from vegetation. He just sews some small mesh bags that he attaches with a rubber band to keep them from being chopped up. Who would have thought that a common garden appliance can be helpful for people who are involved in the study of insects?
Loyal Dog Protected Injured Sister Stranded On Railroad Tracks For Days
It Seemed To Be Very Bad

The Case of the Ever-Growing Nose – Medical Kindness in Action
Young people are constantly afraid how they look will reflect on their social status and getting through teenagehood. So imagine how fearful and frustrating it could be if, beginning with the most socially impressionable phase of a young life, your nose started growing uncontrollably. This is exactly what happened to one young lady from Louisiana, Pamela Ichard.
Pamela grew up with a very normal childhood. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and looking at all her school photos, nobody would notice anything out of the ordinary. However, at 15 and going through her worst phase of acne, Pamela realized her facial changes were not temporary and something more serious was occurring. The acne was more severe, and the actual surface of her skin was transforming around her nose. Everyone thought it was just a bad case of acne that she would grow out of, like every teenager before. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
What was actually happening to Pamela was a skin condition known as Rosacea. It would progress into most of her adult life, but as a teenager she had no idea. Pamela simply thought she was unlucky kid with bad acne. In her 20s though the difference in her nose became apparent. No longer did she have the thin cute nose of her childhood. Instead, her nose was already larger, rounder and more pronounced. This became very evidence as Pamela entered motherhood and had two children. What she thought at first was just a skin reaction turned out to be permanent disfigurement of Pamela’s nose. In addition, the rest of the skin around her nasal area and cheeks changed texture and become rougher and uneven. As her children grew older, Pamela resigned herself to a more and more pronounced facial feature without any solution or cure.
By the time Pamela was 46, she had lived with her form of Rosacea for more than 30 years. Specifically, her severe condition is known as Rhinophyma. The exact reason why it affected Pamela is unknown but the physical deformation is obvious, and in her case literally on the front of her face, a practically unavoidable situation in terms of being seen. This affected Pamela psychologically, changing her temperament from a happy young person to a chronically unhappy adult. And it was not as if Pamela didn’t seek help; she tried multiple doctors and ten times as many prescriptions. However, none of the drugs or medicines prescribed had any effect. Instead, her condition just seemed to get worse.
Finally, being a 2016 case on a TV show called the Doctors, Pamela let the entertainment world see her condition on the off chance someone medically might have a solution. It worked; Dr. Ann Zedlitz agreed to take on the case surgically and help Pamela. The results were amazing. Pamela finally had a normal-looking nose and face again after three decades of suffering. And best of all, the surgery was provided for free. Since the surgery Pamela has begun enjoying her life again and, best of all, she’s smiling again.
