An Arizona woman was on a hike with her two dogs when a rattlesnake appeared before her, but before she could panic, her fearless pup jumped in to save her.

Paula Godwin was taking a morning walk with her two dogs Friday when she nearly stepped on a rattlesnake.

Godwin also posted pictures which apparently show the dog after the bite, with his face swelled up. "He jumped right in front of my leg [where] I surely would have [been] bit".

It has been interacted with more than 200,000 times since it was posted Sunday afternoon. But soon it turned into a tragedy when her little Todd got bit by a rattlesnake fighting hard her to protect Godwin.

Ms Godwin rushed Todd to a vet for treatment.

Thousands protest against Trump's 'Zero Tolerance Policy'
More than 16,000 had RSVP-ed on Facebook for the " Families Belong Together " march, and Daley Plaza began filling up by 10 a.m. People across many major towns and cities in the USA had been urged to gather under the slogan #familiesbelongtogether.

Money is now being raised on Todd's behalf to provide financial help to other dogs bitten by poisonous snakes in the area. "Then, that's when he struck Todd and then he started to rattle".

The group has set a goal of $500, and raised $125 in its first two hours after being launched.

Godwin and Todd's story has now gone viral, with photos of the pup's swollen face making the rounds on social media with many pointing out the obvious.

Godwin started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $500 that she said will go to help other dog owners in the area with similarly fearless pets pay for antivenom treatment.
