Puppy Saves Owner from Rattlesnake Attack

Godwin had already walked her dogs to the top of the trail and was headed back down when the snake bit Todd.

The owner of a golden retriever in Arizona has deemed her dog a hero after she says he jumped in front of her to protect her from a rattlesnake, taking a bite to the face in the process. "Look how cute Todd is in his little harness!"

Godwin says she and the young golden retriever were on a walk when she almost stepped on the rattler. Her puppy, Todd, jumped in front of her leg to ensure she wouldn't get bit. But, this golden retriever might be the most heroic pup yet.

Todd was taken to the Anthem Animal Hospital, where they treated the bite and face swelling.

Whatever Todd's intention, Godwin said, "he's still my hero".

On Monday Godwin posted to Facebook that "Todd is recovering so well".

He leaped in between his owner and the snake that was about to strike.

Paula Godwin said she and her dogs were out hiking in Anthem, Arizona when she nearly stepped on the venomous serpent. It was a handsome morning but as we. Unfortunately, Todd copped the bite.

She also thanked concerned followers, writing, "Your kindness and support is truly a blessing".

Godwin shared the GoFundMe page's information, saying the fund will be for those in need, adding "Todd wants to help more puppies".
