Cospiere Australian Shepherd Aussie
"Cospiere" is an Australian Shepherd who encountered a rattlesnake and innocently approached it as most dogs do. He was bitten on the nose (see pics above) but was fortunate enough to survive. Compare the pics above to how he normally looks! He has since been trained to avoid rattlesnakes. Being born deaf, he would be unaware of the snake's sounds. Since the training covers both visual and smell too, he learned the lesson and has been avoiding snakes since 2013 when he was originally trained. Bite photos - courtesy of C. Scalera.
