'Hero' dog bitten by rattlesnake while protecting owner

2 July 2018

Move over K-9, there's a new superdog in town.

Todd the golden retriever was labelled a hero for putting himself in harm's way to protect his owner - and was bitten by a rattlesnake in the process.

Paula Godwin posted the story to Facebook, alongside pictures of Todd's swollen face, describing what happened.

"As we were walking down the hill I literally almost stepped on a rattlesnake. But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me."

Todd was called into action when Paula found herself face-to-face with a rattlesnake on a hike trail in Arizona.
