Puppy saves owner from rattlesnake in Arizona

Puppy saves owner from rattlesnake in Arizona

Paula Godwin was taking a morning walk with her two dogs Friday when she nearly stepped on a rattlesnake.

Godwin wrote on her Facebook account: "So this morning was up bright and early to go on a hike on 7th street carefree".

In a Facebook post, Godwin hailed Todd "a hero" alongside images of the puppy with a swollen face as a result of the snake's venom.

Godwin sought medical treatment for Todd immediately, and she said the fearless pup is expected to fully recover. But soon it turned into a tragedy when her little Todd got bit by a rattlesnake fighting hard her to protect Godwin.

Friends of Todd has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Anthem Pets Animal Rescue.

Spurs and Lakers believe Kawhi Leonard trade clinches LeBron to LA
What the Spurs do from here on out is anyone's guess, but they are handling the end of the Leonard situation with aplomb. The Lakers could potentially construct a superteam of LeBron, Kawhi and Paul George - but according to ESPN's Stephen A.

On Monday Godwin posted to Facebook that "Todd is recovering so well".

As the reptile lunged at her, Golden Retriever Todd jumped to her aid. Todd ended up suffering a serious bite on his snout.

Todd was strolling along with Paula and her other dog, Cooper, in Anthem, Arizona when they came upon a hidden rattlesnake.

The post also included a collage of photos of Todd, some of which showed the 6-month-old Golden Retriever wearing the effects of a venomous bite. Several users repeated the idea that humans don't deserve the love of a dog, and wished Todd a speedy recovery.
