A six-month-old golden retriever from Carefree, Arizona is deservedly being hailed as a K9 hero after he stepped in to save his human from a rattlesnake. The very good dog was bitten on the face by the snake while defending his human during a walk but is expected to make a full recovery. The story went viral after the popular Twitter account WeRateDogs posted photos of the heroic pup.
"This is Todd. He saved his human from a rattlesnake yesterday," the account wrote. "A true h*ckin hero. He's expected to make a full recovery and has been rewarded our fifth every 15/10."
There's no doubt that heroic Todd deserves the 15/10 rating, as well as the praise on social media. I mean, come on, just look at that face.
"For me, he's definitely my hero," Todd's human, Paula, told Fox10. "That thing would have bit me for sure and I would never wish that on any of my pets or anybody."
The curious and friendly 6-month-old pup was seen cuddling up with Paula and happily playing during the interview with Fox10. It's great to see both Todd and Paula doing well after such a scary incident.
