My name is Charlie. I'm a DAD. -a Diabetic Alert Dog. I started training on scent when I was only a few hours old. I flew all the way from Utah to live with my mom Melisa who is a Type 1 Diabetic; I watch over her and make sure her blood sugar stays within acceptable limits. When she is too high or too low, I let her know by alerting her. I am a self trained D.A.D., which means that my mom is doing most of the training her self. But she has some help from some great friends and trainers. If you see me out and about PLEASE ask first before petting me. I have a very important job to do and sometimes should not be distracted while I am working.
Charlie is a very lucky boy! He has an awesome mom!
The last few posts were about DADS that were born 3/4/2011 at my home. I am so honored that these dogs and people came into my life! I am honored that the all found each other! It is so amazing to me how well all of them are doing! It has taken LOTS of hard work on their part but they all are amazing TEAMS!
