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

Paula was out walking Todd and her other dog, Cooper, in Anthem, Arizona, in the Southwest of the United States, when she very almost stood on a rattlesnake.

As Godwin of Anthem, Arizona, returned home Friday from hiking with her two dogs, Todd and Copper, 6-month-old Todd moved between her and the snake, ending up with the snake bite, she said.

However, her "hero of a puppy" Todd managed to jump out in front of it to protect her.

Godwin said she would've surely been bit if it hadn't been for Todd's heroic actions.

Godwin took him to the hospital 10 minutes after he was bitten.

"This is what a hero looks like", Godwin wrote, along with a picture of Todd's enlarged nose.

Donald Trump: 'Super Elite' Better than Elite 'Stone Cold Losers'
Trump's popularity in the North Dakota is unquestionably strong. "That's what you need, and that's Kevin Cramer ", Trump said. Trump had once courted Heitkamp, even inviting her to NY to discuss a Cabinet post soon after his 2016 election victory.

"Thank you for all the sweet kind words my sweet Todd for sure is my hero and I feel I have to say that the man upstairs surely is watching out for me to".

Godwin posted an update on her Facebook page for those anxious about his health and wrote, he seems to heal well.

This golden retriever has a heart of gold.

"This is Todd. He saved his human from a rattlesnake yesterday".

Todd is doing just fine after his big ordeal and Godwin said that "he's acting like a normal puppy". A true h*ckin hero.

The story was soon being shared all over Twitter when the We Rate Dogs account tweeted a tribute to Todd on Sunday. Godwin states that the fundraiser is not specifically for Todd, but to help others in need. She said her fearless dog is doing "so well", and she is amazed by how quickly he is recovering from the potentially-deadly bite.
