Banner, a three year old Siberian Husky, is a medical / psychiatric service dog for her mom, Whitney Braley. Braley suffers from PTSD and often has anxiety attacks. Banner is always right next to her to help calm her down.
It also detects migraines, low and high blood pressure, slows Braley’s heartbeat and removes it from crowds, among many other things.
Banner is extremely loyal and likes to help all creatures, not just humans. When Banner knew the animals needed help, she led Braley to the forest.
Confused, Braley observed Banner’s circle around a cardboard box left in the middle of the forest. Braley gently opened the box and Banner immediately put his head in it and lifted something out.
There was a kitten in Banner’s mouth! The kitten was stuffed into a box with his six sisters and sisters.
It is not known exactly how they were injured there, but Braley suspects someone locked them in boxes and left them to die, thinking no one would find them.
The kittens would not make any sounds, so Braley feared they might have died; but thankfully, apart from freezing, they were all alive.
“I don’t even know how Banner knew they were there,” Braley told the Good Times. “The kittens were frozen and weren’t cheating or anything. She just knew it somehow. She’s a real hero. If she didn’t find the kitten, everyone would die.”
Braley brought kittens home to feed and care for them to make sure they grew large and strong. But not without Banner’s help. Banner was so gentle with the kitten and started acting like she was their mom.
She watched them constantly, even laughing, and fell asleep with them. Thanks to the quick thinking instincts of Banner and the mothers, these kittens were able to have a new rent for life and eventually everyone went to their homes forever!
