This year, I am fostering Oaklee, a standard poodle. He is 10 months old and will make a wonderful and caring dog for some lucky person. My foster puppy from last year, Ria, is a Diabetic Alert Dog, helping someone with Type 1 diabetes with hypoglycemic unawareness. She has been trained to detect sudden drops in her person's blood sugar through scent and alert them so that they can ingest something sweet. She can go get help within the home or activate an alert system if needed. Her ability to detect and react to hypoglycemic episodes helps her person avoid loss of consciousness and subsequent life-threatening effects. She has been specially trained to provide increased safety, security and independence. I am very proud of her! Please donate so that these lovely dogs can continue to be trained to help people who need them. Thanks.
