Fayetteville, GA – A pitbull named Dixie was walking with the Humphries children, age 7 and 9 when a deadly cottonmouth snake appeared. As it got ready to strike the children, without any hesitation, Dixie pushed the children aside, putting herself between them and the snake. She suffered two bites on her face and was rushed to the vet, who thankfully was able to save her. Dixie made a full recovery, and this family treasures her as much as any of their human children. She was inducted into the Georgia Animal Hall of Fame for her selfless heroic act.!
