VA provides $16K service dog to vet claiming PTSD from '70s service in Navy

What is “going on” with Berry are the symptoms from post-traumatic stress he developed after serving in the Navy in the 1970s. Naya, a two-year-old German shepherd, is his guide and stabilizing presence during tense situations, picking up on Berry’s emotional state even before he becomes aware of it himself, he said. “I have a $16,000 service dog,” Berry said. “It’s not a pet. It’s not a novelty item.”
