JASPER, Tx. — An organization called “Drey’s Alert Dogs” is training dogs to help diabetics control their blood sugar by pawing at them when the dogs smell blood sugar below 80 or above 180. The organization has enlisted children to help socialize the puppies, and that’s when one of the dogs diagnosed a 7-year-old boy with diabetes.
The boy’s mother said that “If we wouldn’t have been here I probably never would’ve know that he was a diabetic.”
Drey’s diabetic alert dogs are currently helping people all over the United States from California to Florida to Ohio.
