A dog that was out on a walk in the Anthem, Arizona, desert area is recovering after being bitten by a rattlesnake Friday morning.
Ms Godwin shared several images of Todd with a swollen face after the snake sunk its teeth just below his right eye.
Unfortunately, the snake bit the dog right in the face.
In a more-recent Facebook post, Godwin provided an update on Todd's recovery saying, "Thank you so much seriously wow Todd is recovering so well this was yesterday at the park". However, before she could get any closer to the snake, Todd jumped in front of her. Todd proved that he was not only cute but also courageous later in the walk as Godwin almost stepped on a rattlesnake. "This is what a hero looks like".
We doubt it and that's what makes Todd the golden retriever such a great mate.
Samsung has finally agreed to pay up for copying the iPhone
How much, if anything, Samsung must now pay Apple under Wednesday's settlement could not immediately be learned. The court originally sided with Apple in 2012, ordering Samsung to pay more than $1 billion in damages.
Todd noticed the rattlesnake coming towards them before Goodwin did.
The six-month old puppy jumped in front of Paula Godwin.
"It was a attractive morning", Godwin wrote in a Facebook post. According to patch.com, Godwin's medical expenses for Todd were $1,500. "Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills".
"People from the Philippines have been contacting us with well wishes", she said.
