Jake — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pilots N Paws
Location: Lake Linden, Michigan

Jake is not trained for any form of medical detection only as a therapy dog. His training is in visiting people such as thought in hospitals and nursing homes. I became sick one afternoon and thought I had a stomach flu. I began vomiting and went to lay down to take a nap. Jake kept following me around the house closely and would not leave my side. This behavior is not normal for Jake. After 2 hours of being sick and this strange behavior from Jake I began o wonder if I may have something more wrong with me. I finally had my wife take me to the hospital and it was after numerous tests they determined I was having a heart attack and had I not come in would be dead. It was through Jakes swift actions that my life was saved.
