They live in a house close to the Tijuca Forest, in Rio de Janeiro.

The dog is a mix between German Shepherd and Rotweiller.

The snake, a Jararaca 2 meters long, was going to attack Miguel Almeida, 2 years old, when Brutus the dog was bitten instead. As the little boy screamed his mother came to rescue him. With three children at home, alone, she called the forest guards, who then captured the snake.

Brutus received anti-snake serum and is recovering.
