Ventura — Service
Ventura is the definition of a hero. She has saved my life more times than I can count, even times when I was asleep and without her I may have not woken up. She brings a smile to everyone’s faces and loves to show off her toys especially if you’re feeling down. I was someone who was scared to go out and do things because I didn’t know I was safe, but with Ventura I know I am, I never have to fear my disease or being alone with it. She was raised to be a guide dog, but with a certain medical condition that stopped her from being able to wear the harness she was adapted to being a medical alert dog, and she passed the program with a 90% accuracy rate. She is determined, funny and my best friend, I don’t think there’s any other dog that shows more of what a true hero is than Ventura.
