Transcript for Dog Saves Young Girl From Rattlesnake
Haus, the hero, a German shepherd that stepped in to save 7-year-old Molly Deluca from a rattlesnake and Haus' family say they were playing in the front yard when the snake crept in biting the dog several times and Haus is now recovering at an animal hospital and moments ago as you see right there the family was reunited with Haus and joining us from the vet's office, Molly, Donya and her brother joey and Dr. Jennifer Holm, the vet. You had a chance to finally see Houston. How is Houston doing. Houston is doing remarkably well. I would almost say it seems miraculous based on the turnaround that we had from last week and we're just really, really happy. And, Molly, you said you believe Haus was protecting Molly. I absolutely do. It's easy to see for anyone who's spent time with Haus and our children that he absolutely nannies our children and watches out for them. It's common for him to sweep the yard or check everything out when he goes out. And he stood his ground and continued to charge when a large venomous snake was attacking him.

What did Haus do when the snake was coming towards you? If I could tell you, guy, Molly wasn't particularly paying attention. She saw the aftermath but Molly wasn't really particularly paying attention when it happened so she saw afterward and the blood and why she got so upset but it happened so quickly my mother was the one who really witnessed it. Dr. Holm, I have one question for you. How sick was Haus and how was Haus doing right now? What's the recovery process and what is Haus going to go home. We hope Haus will get to go home today. We are doing a couple more checks on him early this afternoon and fingers crossed we hope that he will get to go home either today or tomorrow. Everybody, thank you so much, Dr. Holm, as well. We're glad everybody is okay and you know what, Haus, great story, great dog. Man's best friend. Haus. Real hero. What's so great about that, Haus -- Yeah. Joey was knocked out. Haus to the rescue also, I love that. Appreciative of his new home. Rescue full circle. All right, coming up next,
