Sadie was born with severe Type 1 diabetes, which meant that she always had to be monitored to make sure her blood sugar levels stayed normal. Her parents, being protective as all parents are, did everything in their power to make sure their little girl was always taken care of. This is why they got Hero.
This Labrador is a trained diabetic alert dog who will alert them if he senses that Sadie’s blood sugar levels drop dangerously low. Growing up together, they have been inseparable since he joined the family, and this story is proof of just how intuitive animals are about the people they love.
When Sadie was in school one day, Sadie’s mum saw that Hero was looking agitated. His peculiar behavior alerted her that something may be wrong with Sadie, even though she was in school five miles away. Quickly calling up the school, she requested the nurse to check Sadie’s blood sugar levels, and they were shocked to see the result.
Sadie’s levels were dangerously low, and Hero warned them in the nick of time. The only question everyone was asking was, how did he know?? He was five miles away, and I know dogs have a keen sense of smell, but five miles is a huge distance. Even I’m puzzled by this.
But thanks to Hero, Sadie was saved. So kudos to the dog who turned out to be the Hero of the day. Pets always keep an eye out for the people they love. I absolutely ADORE dogs, and stories like this are the reason why. Don’t miss this incredible story of Hero and Sadie in the video below.
