  • A golden retriever named Todd saved his owner from a rattlesnake that consequently bit him in the face

PHOTO: Todd, 6-month-old golden retriever was bitten by a rattlesnake during a walk with his owner on a trail in Anthem, Ariz., June 29, 2018.

Paula Godwin, from Anthem, Arizona, was on a hike Friday morning when she nearly stepped on the risky viper, she wrote in a Facebook post.

Todd jumped into harm's way to protect Godwin and was bitten in the face in the process.

As the reptile lunged at her, Golden Retriever Todd jumped to her aid.

"He for sure saved me from being bitten", Godwin said. Todd continues to recover.

"Just a thank you to all the support Your kindness and support is truly a blessing", Godwin wrote in the post, where she is kissing her hero on less-swollen muzzle. A true h*ckin hero.


He was rushed to an animal hospital for treatment, and luckily is expected to make a full recovery.

Popular Twitter account We Rate Dogs even posted a message praising the pup to its 7 million followers.

Paula Godwin It's OK, Todd!

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

For Paula Godwin, she found out that her pup, Todd, was willing to go that extra mile to keep her safe.

"We don't deserve dogs", one user stated, while another stated "dogs are the best people".
