Hero Pup Saves Owner From Rattlesnake [PICS]

Poor pup. But also, good boy! A woman in Arizona says her dog is a hero after the pup jumped in front of her to take the brunt of a rattlesnake bite. Ouch! Paula Godwin said she and her 2 dogs, Todd and Copper, were hiking in Phoenix last week when they stumbled upon a rattlesnake. Paula said she almost stepped on it when Todd quickly jumped in between.

“It bit Todd quickly then started rattling,” Paula told KTAR.

She picked him up and started running down the hill with Cooper to a nearby animal hospital. Thankfully, doctors were able to treat him with antivenom. Despite a swollen face, Todd is expected to have a full recovery!
