For the past four years, Taxi, a service dog, has been by 7th-grader Rachel Benke’s side. That includes sitting in every class with her at school, so it’s only fitting that Taxi get his own spot in the school yearbook!
Taxi, a Golden Retriever/Labrador mix, was never able to complete the guide dog training program he was entered into because of a strong reaction to cats. However, he’s been the perfect service dog for Rachel, who has suffered from epileptic seizures since just after she was born, alerting her to seizures before they happen, staying by her side protecting her at all times, and offering companionship and support.
In the San Antonio, Texas’ 7th-grade yearbook is an adorable portrait of Taxi Benke, right next to Rachel, where he belongs.
