Courier-Mail – Rescued terrier returns favour

JUST a few months after being rescued near death from an industrial bin, hero pooch Jerry has saved a life of his own.

The tiny fox terrier cross recently stood between two-year-old Reuben Wright and a deadly brown snake in the garden of the family’s property at Goondiwindi, 360km west of Brisbane. Mum Patricia Wright saw the stand-off when she raced outside after hearing her younger boy crying.

“I came out and I saw Jerry standing between Reuben and an adult brown snake,” she said.

“We get a lot of them around here and I’ve been bitten by one myself. I don’t know if a two-year-old would survive a bite but Jerry fought it off and it went off under the garage.”
