A hero dog, taking a hike with his owner in the Anthem desert on Friday, jumped out in front of a rattlesnake. The Golden retriever, named Todd was bitten in the face. Paula Godwin told the story about her hero pooch on Facebook.
“It was a beautiful morning but as we were walking down the hill I literally almost stepped on a mf rattlesnake. But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me. He jumped right in front of my leg where I surely would have got bit. This is what a hero looks like. Please say a little prayer for my sweet hero,” she said.
Todd was rushed to an emergency veterinarian. The bite caused the dog’s face to swell, but he is expected to make a full recovery.
“My hero of a puppy Todd saved me.”
On Monday, Paula updated her young hero dog’s condition. Friends and animal lovers all breathed a sigh of relief.
“Todd’s doing so well he is a wonder to me how he is healing. Just a thank you to all the support Your kindness and support is truly a blessing.”
A GoFundMe account has been established for other dogs who may need financial help should a tragedy like this happen to them.
