A very good boy named Todd made headlines this week when he saved his mom from a venomous snakebite.
Paula Godwin was out for a hike along the Carefree Highway Trail in Phoenix, Arizona when she suddenly found herself almost on top of a rattlesnake.
Brave little Todd leaped in front of Paula’s legs, taking the strike meant for her.
Paula immediately rushed Todd to the vet for the anti-venom and care needed to save his life.
