Hero Dog Awards - Barnabee


Evansville, Wisconsin

I rescued Barnabee when he was 3 months old. I was at a really low point in my life, I’m a survivor of domestic violence so I have depression, anxiety and PTSD. I wasn’t doing well but Barnabee saved my life. When I would have issues, he knew I needed him, and when I was feeling suicidal, he wouldn’t leave me alone. I’m almost 4 years sober now too because of him. Because of Barnabee, I have a real life now, a life I never imagined I would have 9 years ago. He saved me, and I can’t even find the words to say how much I love and appreciate him. He’s truly my hero.
