Golden Retriever Saves Owner From Being Bit by Rattlesnake in Arizona

Godwin wrote in a Facebook post that she "literally nearly stepped on a rattlesnake".

The puppy's face was very swollen in the pictures taken afterward, but the owner says he will be fine.

The bite to the nose and cheek caused Todd's face to swell. But soon it turned into a tragedy when her little Todd got bit by a rattlesnake fighting hard her to protect Godwin. It was a attractive morning but as we.

Whatever Todd's intention, Godwin said, "he's still my hero". "He jumped right in front of my leg [where] I surely would have [been] bit".

"This is what a hero looks like", she wrote.

Paula was able to rush Todd to the vet and get the golden retriever the treatment that he needed and he is now recovering from the bite.

A GoFundMe has been created on behalf of Todd to help other dogs and owners with anti-venom payments. "Just a thank you to all the support Your kindness and support is truly a blessing", she wrote thanking everyone.
