KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Dante the black lab is ready for a happy reunion with his military family in Spain after performing some heroics back home in Kissimmee.
Mastriano says they were returning home from a walk one day when a venomous cottonmouth snake lunged at them. Dante pounced on the snake and dragged it away. The snake bit him on the face and leg. He underwent $125 seven treatments in a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy unit as he recovered over the last two months.
Now healthy, Dante left for Madrid on Wednesday.
