This 10-pound little dog's name may be Psycho, but he's one brave and loving dog. Maya Delarosa and her little sister were making mud pies in the town of Hueco Tanks, Texas when they saw a snake. Looking down, they saw it was a rattle snake ready to strike.
Right as the snake was coiling back about to bite the girl, the tiny Chihuahua-poodle mix lunged in between them and took the snake bite right on the eyelid.
Psycho was immediately taken to the vet where his snake bite was treated (the swelling has now gone down). Check out some video footage of heroic little Psycho!
