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

When his owner nearly stepped on a rattlesnake during an early morning hike near their home in Arizona, Todd, the golden retriever, knew exactly what to do.

Paula Godwin and her two dogs got up bright and early last Friday morning to hike near 7th Street Carefree Highway.

His owner Paula Godwin said that as they were walking, Todd jumped in front of her leg to prevent the snake from biting her.

The six-month old puppy jumped in front of Paula Godwin. As a result, the snake bit the dog right on the face.

The picture has been shared thousands of times on social media, garnering more than 360,000 likes and close to 73,000 retweets on just the WeRateDogs Twitter feed. "But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me. Please say a little prayer for my sweet hero".

The growing dog is expected to make a full recovery, according to abc11.com. "Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills", the GoFundMe description page reads.
