Golden Retrievers are known for their obedience and unwavering loyalty. One owner found out how loyal her puppy was when it leaped in front of danger to protect her.
It was just a normal day for Paula Godwin and her two dogs Todd and Copper. They were taking an early morning hike, when out of nowhere a rattlesnake appeared. Being an Arizona native, Godwin was aware and on the lookout for snakes. However, this sly reptile was the same color as the road and undetectable until it was too late.
Godwin shared the heroic story of how her 6-month-old puppy, Todd saved her life on Facebook. “As we were walking down the hill I literally almost stepped on a rattlesnake. But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me.” As soon as her loyal dog sensed danger he ran to his mother’s side. The snake went to lunge on Godwin’s leg but Todd stepped in-between and took the venomous bite.
We wish Todd a speedy recovery. His bravery shows his unconditional love for his mom.
