An Arizona woman was saved from a rattlesnake bite on Friday - when her puppy jumped to the rescue.

This is how Paula Godwin's dog Todd looked after his battle with the snake.

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

The puppy's face was very swollen in the pictures taken afterward, but the owner says he will be fine. Godwin was enjoying the stroll so much, she didn't notice the rattlesnake, which she said she nearly stepped on. "My hero of a puppy Todd saved me", she wrote.

Matt Nelson, the person who runs the We Rate Dogs account, said Todd "shattered" all of the account's records.

Godwin posted an update on her Facebook page for those anxious about his health and wrote, he seems to heal well.

Just as Goodwin was about to unknowingly step on the snake, Todd spotted it and jumped in front of his owner's leg. Thankfully, Godwin had a guardian angel in Todd.

We doubt it and that's what makes Todd the golden retriever such a great mate. She also thanked the pup's many fans on the internet for their support and kindness.

His name is Todd, but you could call him a hero, because that's exactly what his owner is doing. "Donations are not towards Todd's bill but for those in need of help in paying unexpected vet bills", the GoFundMe description page reads.
