Dog Suffers Rattlesnake Bite After Jumping In Front Of Owner On Hike

Paula Godwin, a woman from Anthem, said on Facebook that her and her two dogs, Copper and Todd, were hiking "bright and early" around 7th Street and Carefree Highway in Phoenix on June 29.

Paula Godwin says she was walking her dog Todd down a trail in Anthem, Arizona when Godwin almost stepped on the reptile.

A dog has been hailed a hero for saving his owner from a rattlesnake, taking a nasty bite to the face in the process. But, she said, her "hero of a puppy" saved her. "He jumped right in front of my leg were I surely would have got bit".

After Todd was bit by the snake.

But it was her golden retriever "Todd" to the rescue!

E. Coli-Tainted Romaine Lettuce Linked To Infected Irrigation Canal
The vaccine was field-tested near the end of the major 2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, The New York Times reported. And yes, the romaine lettuce you buy at the store or pile on your plate at the salad bar now is safe to eat.


Godwin told KSAZ that Todd is recovering and is "being a normal puppy". This is what a hero looks like. He saved his human from a rattlesnake yesterday.

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

Godwin provided an update to the pup's condition Sunday, saying her pet is healing from the attack.

Godwin said the swelling has since gone down and Todd is doing "remarkably well" as he recovers from his heroic act.
