Paula Godwin went on a walk Friday with her two dogs, Todd and Copper, along 7th Street in Arizona on a trail she's very familiar with. Todd's swollen snout can be seen in the photos Godwin shared on social media. Godwin was enjoying the stroll so much, she didn't notice the rattlesnake, which she said she nearly stepped on. "But my hero of a puppy, Todd, saved me".
Money is now being raised on Todd's behalf to provide financial help to other dogs bitten by poisonous snakes in the area.
The post has been liked more than 131,000 times.
It took less than 15 minutes to get Todd treated by a veterinarian about 15 miles away from her house, Godwin said, adding that she acquired Todd from Craigslist in March.
News of Todd's heroics spread after Godwin's Facebook post showing his injuries went viral.
