Todd the heroic dog saves owner from rattlesnake

An Arizona woman was on a hike with her two dogs when a rattlesnake appeared before her, but before she could panic, her courageous pup jumped in to save her.

Godwin told KSAZ that Todd is recovering and is "being a normal puppy". Todd's swollen snout can be seen in the photos Godwin shared on social media. She even posted a live video on Facebook sharing about her morning walk wishing everyone a happy day.

"My hero of a puppy Todd saved me", Godwin wrote on Facebook.

Upon closer inspection of the viral picture, it's clear that Todd has a bandage above his right, front paw, as it looks like he is hooked up to an IV. "I picked him up, ran down the hill with my other dog Copper, and we got him to the hospital within about 10 minutes of being bit", she added.

The post has been liked more than 131,000 times.

However, her "hero of a puppy" Todd managed to jump out in front of it to protect her. Todd proved that he was not only cute but also fearless later in the walk as Godwin almost stepped on a rattlesnake.

"It bit Todd quickly then started rattling", she said. "Please say a prayer for my sweet hero". Thankfully, the fearless pooch is expected to make a full recovery. "Todd's doing so well, [it] is a wonder to me how he is healing. Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills", explained Paula.
