6-Month-Old Golden Retriever Gets Bitten By A Rattlesnake While Protecting His Owner ????

We are thrilled to say this story has a happy ending. 

Paula Godwin took to Facebook and praised her six-month-old golden retriever, Todd, for saving her from getting bitten by a rattlesnake. The two were hiking in Arizona when Godwin almost stepped on the the snake. That’s when Todd the superdog jumped in front of Godwin and took a bite to the face. 

After the bite, Godwin rushed Todd to the vet where he was treated and is expected to make a full recovery. 

Now Godwin wants to help other pups. She started a GoFundMe page to cover bills for other dogs who have been bitten by snakes. 

It looks like Todd is getting lots of love from Godwin and others. 

He’s even inspired some poetry. 

We wish Todd a speedy recovery!
