Hero dog suffers swollen snout after saving owner from rattlesnake bite

Paula Godwin and her two dogs got up bright and early last Friday morning to hike near 7th Street Carefree Highway.

Godwin wrote on Facebook, "it was a lovely morning, but as we were walking down the hill I nearly stepped on a rattlesnake".

She says Todd jumped into action by jumping right in front of her leg.

Photos showed the pup's face was very swollen after the bite.

His name is Todd, but you could call him a hero, because that's exactly what his owner is doing.

"I literally walked right by him and Todd kind of jolted toward my foot to see what the heck was by my leg", Godwin recalled. Unfortunately, Todd copped the bite.
