‘This is what a hero looks like’: Pet dog saves owner from being bit by rattlesnake during hike

She took to Facebook to share the story of Todd's wonderful bravery along with photos of the pupper's swollen face and bandaged leg.

"That snake would have bit my leg for sure and he is absolutely my hero", Godwin told 7News. What a fearless boy!
