The incident happened in the Gajapati district of Bhubaneswar in Odisha, where the venomous cobras tried to enter the house of Dibakar Raita of Sebekapur village. The dog, which was guarding the house at the entrance, attempted to stop them which led to a fierce battle between the dog and the four snakes.
"I am really shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family. I will remember him till I die. I pray to God that his soul may rest in peace," Dibakar Raita told media.
After hearing the story of the dog's sacrifice hundreds of villagers gathered and laid floral wreaths and held funeral a procession before burying him.
The dog's ultimate sacrifice for his master once again proved the saying that dogs are the most faithful animal in the world.
