(FOX NEWS) – Two separate rattlesnake attacks unfolded on opposite sides of the country with very different results. In one attack, a snake bit a dog protecting a child, and in the other, the snake bit a child protecting his dog.
Fortunately, the children and dogs all survived.
On Wednesday in Florida, a 2-year-old German shepherd named Haus was playing with 7-year-old Molly DeLuca in their backyard when the Eastern diamondback rattlesnake slithered near them. The dog jumped into action.

"He was standing up for my daughter, he was standing between, he didn't budge," Donya DeLuca told Fox 13. She said the girl could have died had the snake attacked her.
