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.

Todd, her "hero of a puppy", courageously jumped in front of its owner's leg where she "surely would have got bit". "But my hero of a puppy, Todd, saved me".

It has been interacted with more than 200,000 times since it was posted Sunday afternoon.


But her 6-month-old golden retriever, Todd, came to the rescue! "Please say a little prayer for my sweet hero".

Unfortunately his heroism did was not without consequences as the rattler bit him in the face, causing his cheek to swell dramatically. "Then, that's when he struck Todd and then he started to rattle". 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. However, the money raised is not going to be used for Todd's medical bills.

Todd is doing just fine after his big ordeal and Godwin said that "he's acting like a normal puppy".


It is not an cheap treatment.

Godwin started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $500 that she said will go to help other dog owners in the area with similarly fearless pets pay for antivenom treatment. He received the anti-venom quickly and after a stay at the hospital for about 12 hours, he is back home.

'This is what a hero looks like.


Paula was able to rush Todd to the vet and get the golden retriever the treatment that he needed and he is now recovering from the bite.
