After jumping in front of a venomous rattlesnake to save its owner, a heroic dog gets bitten. np
Every dog owner is familiar with those early morning walks with the beloved pet. So is Paula Godwin from Anthem, USA, who casually took a carefree walk with her two dogs – Todd and Cooper – last Friday, June 29th, but it ended not really as she expected.
Everything happened so fast, Paula at first didn’t even notice something sitting on the road in front of her. “It was a beautiful morning but as we were walking down the hill I literally almost stepped on a rattlesnake,” Godwin wrote in a Facebook post. “But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me.”
6-month-old Golden Retriever Todd proved that dog is a man’s best friend by jumping between his owner and a dangerous reptile, taking the bite that was addressed to his human. “He jumped right in front of my leg where I surely would have got bit. This is what a hero looks like,” says Paula.
Since the rattlesnake bit poor puppy right on the face and it quickly started to swell up, Paula Godwin rushed to the nearest veterinarian clinic without even thinking. The vet gave Todd a shot of anti-venom and kept him for the rest of the day just to see if everything’s okay.
Yesterday his owner updated her Facebook status with a picture of Todd in the park saying that her puppy is recovering fine and is already back on his feet. “Todd for sure is my hero and I feel I have to say that the man up stairs ️surely is watching out for me, too.”
One brave and loyal dog named Max put its life on the line to protect its owner from a venomous rattlesnake. Despite knowing the potential danger, Max jumped in front of the snake to defend its owner.
The snake struck, and Max was bitten. Despite the excruciating pain, Max continued to fight off the snake until it slithered away. Max’s owner rushed him to the veterinarian immediately, where he received life-saving treatment.
After the incident, Max was showered with love and affection from his owner and the community, recognizing the heroic act of the furry friend. Max’s actions reminded everyone that dogs are not just pets, but family members that will always protect and love their owners, even if it means putting their own lives on the line.
Max’s story serves as a reminder of the bond and loyalty between dogs and humans. It’s a bond that is unbreakable and continues to inspire people to this day. Max’s bravery will never be forgotten, and he will forever be remembered as a true hero
