Puppy bit in face while protecting owner from rattlesnake

Would your best friend take a rattlesnake bite for you like this dog did?

As Godwin of Anthem, Arizona, returned home Friday from hiking with her two dogs, Todd and Copper, 6-month-old Todd moved between her and the snake, ending up with the snake bite, she said.

Heroes come in all shapes, sizes and species, as proven by Todd the Golden Retriever. But soon it turned into a tragedy when her little Todd got bit by a rattlesnake fighting hard her to protect Godwin.

But luckily, Godwin said Todd has recovered well and the swelling has even gone down.

Speaking in a video shared in the aftermath of the bite, Paula explained: "He for sure saved me from getting bit".

"I literally walked right by him and Todd kind of jolted toward my foot to see what the heck was by my leg", Godwin recalled. "This is what a hero looks like", she said. He saved his human from a rattlesnake yesterday.

Paula Godwin It's OK, Todd!

One popular Twitter account called We Rate Dogs posted about Todd with the caption: 'This is Todd. "He's expected to make a full recovery and has been rewarded our fifth ever 15/10", the tweet read.

"It was a lovely morning", Godwin wrote in a Facebook post. "Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills".

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