A puppy is on the mend after jumping in front of a rattlesnake to protect his owner in Arizona Friday.

Paula Godwin, of Anthem, Ariz., said she was walking her dog, "Todd", early Friday morning on a hiking trail when she says she encountered a rattlesnake.

Unfortunately, the snake bit the dog, right in the face!

A golden retriever named Todd saved his owner from a rattlesnake that consequently bit him in the face. Todd's swollen snout can be seen in the photos Godwin shared on social media. It was a handsome morning but as we were walking down the hill I literally nearly stepped on a ... rattlesnake. "This is what a hero looks like please say a little prayer for my sweet hero".

But it was her golden retriever "Todd" to the rescue!

A GoFundMe has been created on behalf of Todd to help other dogs and owners with anti-venom payments.
