On Friday, June the 29th, Paula took her 2 dogs, Todd, and Cooper for their usual morning walk. A beautiful morning doggie walk turned into an event that Paula will never forget!
As they were walking and enjoying the beautiful morning, Todd the baby Golden Retriever suddenly jumped in front of Paula. To her shock, she did not realize she was about to step on the rattlesnake. Hero Todd, who was about 6 months old, was so alert and brave, he came to her rescue by jumping in from of her step and took the snake bike from her.
Everything happened so fast, and everyone was in shock at that moment. Paula soon noticed the swelling on Todd’s face and realized that the rattlesnake has bitten him on his face. Without delay, Paula hurried off with her pup to the Vet nearby. Todd was given a dose of anti-snake venom injection by the vet and was kept at the clinic for the day to be monitored.
Paula updated her Facebook the next day, happy to share that brave Todd is getting better and she took him to the park. What a brave and heroic puppy Todd was. Paula feels blessed to be the owner of Todd the golden hero.
