Jeff the brave Stafford-shire Terrier
You don’t mess with an eastern brown snake, which is famous for being the world’s second-most venomous land snake. Somehow a 1-year-old Stafford-shire Terrier named Jeff on the Gold Coast of Australia just happened to know that.
The snake almost killed Jeff, but the dog ended up killing the snake instead in the vegetable garden outside of Jeff’s family’s home, which is where their three children often play.
The family found Jeff just staying there with the snake beside him—it took three anti-venom shots from a vet to keep Jeff alive. Just one shot of venom from an Eastern Brown snake is enough to “take out 16 healthy adults.”
