Well... we've got more proof that dogs are better than humans!
Take Todd, he's a golden retriever from Arizona that jumped in front of a rattlesnake to save his owner, Paula. As you can see, that snake got a piece of Todd but USA Today reports that (aside from the swelling) this good boy will make a speedy recovery. Hooray for dogs!
What a good boy! An Arizona dog is being hailed as a hero after he shielded his owner from a snake bite on a recent hike. Paula Godwin wrote on Facebook that she was out with her dogs Todd and Cooper when she nearly stepped on a rattlesnake. She says Todd jumped right in between her and the snake. It bit Todd in the face and Godwin was uninjured. She later shared photos showing the golden retriever with a facial wound. Godwin sought medical treatment for Todd immediately, and she said the brave pup is expected to fully recover. #hero #herodog #pup #goodboy #abc7news #dogs #dog #cutedog #goldenretriever #rattlesnake
