Hero Dog Awards - Juju


Moss Point, Mississippi

Juju is my 4 year old owner trained seizure and syncope alert dog who takes her job very seriously. She has saved my life on multiple occasions by not only alerting to on coming episodes, but by rolling me over, ensuring I do not choke, staying at my side, helping me come around to reality in a safe manner. She also alerts to my Goddaughter, with the same rare condition, when we are together. Juju loves her job.

She also provides a relief from the isolation depression that accompanies chronic illness, especially during a pandemic. She is fun, and loves to dress up, paint, glitter, and gets me out to play ball, but will stop to insist I sit if I need to. She is my constant side kick, without whom I would no longer be here.
