Story of the “Hero Pit Bull” goes viral

Slayer was treated at the BluePearl hospital in Brandon, Fla. after being bitten by a venomous snake.

Dozens of television stations, newspapers and other media covered the story of Slayer and Paco, two pit bulls who were bit by a venomous snake in Brandon, Fla. Slayer attacked and killed the snake. If not for that, the dogs’ owner says the snake might very well have bitten her grandchildren, who often play in the same back yard where this attack occurred. Thanks to quick and expert veterinary care from BluePearl, Slayer and Paco are now healed and enjoying life back at home. Watch this report from Tampa’s WFLA-TV.
