– A Norfolk dog is competing against many “top dogs” in a national competition called The American Humane Hero Dog Awards® contest.

According to the website, there are seven categories: Law Enforcement and Detection Dogs, Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Military Dogs, Guide/Hearing Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs and Shelter Dogs. Cameo's owner, Brittany Sorrentini, suffers from anxiety and narcolepsy, and she got the black lab mix a couple of years ago.

Sorrentini could not wait on an organization to provide her with a service dog, which is a process that typically takes three to five years.

I like all that about her,” Sorrentini described. Her owner says the dog helps in various ways, including waking her for medication doses, performing deep pressure therapy by lying on top of her when she is having a panic attack and providing emotional support as well as a barrier between her and crowds. “I get very sleepy and have sleep attacks.

Sometimes it happens while I’m driving, and Cameo will alert to that so I can pull over, take a nap if need be, or go grab a cup of coffee. ”In addition to the continuous support the dog gives her owner, Cameo is also credited with alerting the family during a house fire in the fall of 2019. “We opened up our bedroom door, and the whole house was filled with smoke.

Sorrentini also says that Cameo motivated her to become a photographer. “I created an Instagram for her, and people were like, ‘You’re really good at that. ’ So, Cameo suffers from the photographer’s child syndrome, and I take pictures of her all the time. ”To see Cameo’s page, click here.
