Molly, a three- year- old Cocker Spaniel, has proven herself very useful for Steven Courtney who suffers from type 1 diabetes. She watches her owner for signs of highs and lows of his blood sugar levels. The service dog had to go through an intensive 10-month training regime to make sure she was able to alert Steven and keep calm in public spaces.
Another dog named Magic had also been trained and went to work with a pediatric nurse in Cambridge. There is also another dog by the name of Hazel, a Spaniel has discovered her owner Melanie Magee after collapsing as a result of her diabetes.
