Golden retriever saves owner from being bit by rattlesnake in Anthem

One popular Twitter account called We Rate Dogs tweeted about's Todd heroic deed

According to the page's description, the group wants to raise money to offset costs for pet owners in the Anthem area, not far from Sedona, whose animals need antivenin.

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

Godwin said Todd jumped right in front of her leg where she "surely would have got bit".

An Arizona golden retriever is healing from a rattlesnake bite after protecting his owner.

Godwin says on Facebook that Todd is recovering and is "being a normal puppy". The rattlesnake reared back and went to strike Godwin, but her faithful pup jumped in harm's way, taking the full force of attack.

"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.




Paula very almost stood on the nasty snake, which was resting on the road, but the hero pooch threw himself in front of his owner to save her from a painful bite.

We doubt it and that's what makes Todd the golden retriever such a great mate.

Todd is doing just fine after his big ordeal and Godwin said that "he's acting like a normal puppy". He saved his human from a rattlesnake yesterday.

"It was a handsome morning", Godwin wrote in a Facebook post.

She also thanked concerned followers, writing, "Your kindness and support is truly a blessing".

Paula Godwin It's OK, Todd! "Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills", explained Paula.
