Bringing a full grown Doberman home with you is a risky proposition. The Doberman Pinscher is a somewhat unpredictable breed. But it’s the training they get early in life that can sometimes predict whether it’s a wise move. In Khan’s case, he had been abused for quite sometime and that’s always a possible sign of trouble. The mother, Catherine allowed her 1 1/2 year old daughter to play outside and she put Khan out there for company.
Like the good mother she is, Catherine kept an eye on her daughter to make sure she was safe. Then she noticed that Khan was pushing the baby with his snout and Catherine moved to go outside, when suddenly, Khan grabbed the baby by her diaper and tossed her a few feet away. Catherine panicked because she thought Khan was going to hurt the baby. Nothing could be further from the truth. A highly venomous Big Brown snake was in the backyard and Khan wanted to get the baby to safety but just as he tossed the baby, the snake bit him on the foot. He was rushed to the vet and made a full recovery.
Catherine was inside the house when she noticed Khan acting funny in the backyard. Her 1.5-year-old daughter, Charlotte, was playing near him.
Khan began to nudge at Charlotte with his nose. Before mom could do anything, Khan picked up Charlotte by her diaper and tossed her a few feet.
Catherine feared the worst. Was Khan turning aggressive on her baby daughter? Was bringing him into their home a mistake? Was he about to really hurt Charlotte?
And then she heard Khan howl
Khan had been bitten on the paw by a king brown snake. The reason he picked up little Charlotte and tossed her was to get her away from this highly venomous snake. After just four days at home, Khan was already protecting his new family with his own life
