A Golden Retriever is being credited with saving his owner from a rattlesnake in Anthem on Friday.

According to a Facebook post from Paula Godwin, she was on a hike with her dogs near 7th Street and Carefree when she almost stepped on a rattlesnake.

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

The brave dog is expected to be OK.
