- A golden retriever was attacked by a rattlesnake in Anthem Friday while he and his owner were hiking.

Something similar happened when a woman from Sedona, Arizona nearly stepped on a rattlesnake - her 6-month-old "hero" puppy leaped in front to save her human ensuring she was safe.

Todd jumped to protect Godwin and was bitten in the face in the process, Godwin says.

"He jumped right in front of my leg were (sic) I surely would have got (sic) bit". What a fearless boy!

Todd is recovering at home in Arizona after being bitten by a rattlesnake that would have poisoned his owner. Less than 20 minutes later, they arrived at an animal hospital, where Todd received antivenom.

The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general. We are in this stadium, which has been built for four games, no cutting corners or looking for a second-level job.

Ms Godwin rushed Todd to a vet for treatment.

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

"It just so happened that he got in the way or at least he was too curious to see what was next to my legs, which saved me from getting bitten", she added. "Todd was yelping right away, crying. He's expected to make a full recovery and has been rewarded our fifth ever 15/10", the post read.

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

This is how Paula Godwin's dog Todd looked after his battle with the snake.
