A golden retriever is being credited with saving his owner from a rattlesnake in Arizona on Friday.

According to a Facebook post from Paula Godwin, she was on a hike with her dogs near the town of Anthem when she almost stepped on a rattlesnake.

Godwin said her dog named Todd jumped in front of her leg where she "surely would have got bit."

The brave dog is expected to be OK.
