Family pet Naboo is believed to have died after being bitten by a snake.

Tahnee spotted a 1.5m-long snake she believed to be a dugite around the same time she found dead mice around her bird aviary, but did not know who to call to remove the snake and thought it had gone away on its own.

Two weeks later Tahnee found five-year-old english staffordshire bull terrier Naboo dead on the front porch.

‘After looking around the entire property for the snake, I ended up finding it and to my surprise, it was also dead, not too far from where I park my car,’ Tahnee said.

‘She (Naboo) protected our family from a snake that clearly didn’t want to go away and posed a threat to the family and to our chickens, birds and quails’
