Paula Godwin treated her golden retriever Todd to a hike Friday morning in Anthem, Arizona.

'But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me.

Instead of Ms Godwin's legs, the venomous fangs sank into his snout.

Godwin says she and the young golden retriever were on a walk, when she almost stepped on the rattler.

Elsewhere, a fundraising page set up to pay the medical bills of other dogs which have been attacked has been set up in the wake of Todd's bravery.

"He jumped right in front of my leg where I surely would have got bit".

The post has been liked more than 131,000 times.

She took to Facebook to share the story of Todd's unbelievable bravery along with photos of the pupper's swollen face and bandaged leg.

Man Utd midfielder Lingard: England can go up another gear
England opened their tournament by beating Tunisia and then thrashed Panama before losing to Belgium with a much-changed side. He's got a lot of ground to make up, but he has the benefit of being a penalty taker and could add a couple from the spot.

Todd is a golden retriever who's getting love and attention across social media after a story of his heroic deeds went viral on Friday.

A smooch for Todd from his owner Paula Godwin.

Godwin posted to Facebook on Monday: "Todd's doing so well he is a wonder to me how he is healing".

The Anthem, Ariz. woman closed her original Facebook post asking her followers to "please say a little prayer for my sweet hero".

She also thanked concerned followers, writing, "Your kindness and support is truly a blessing".

Unfortunately, the snake bit Todd in the face. According to the page's description, the group wants to raise money to offset costs for pet owners in the Anthem area, not far from Sedona, whose animals need antivenin.

Todd is expected to be OK though.
