If you’re a dog owner, then you just know how much of a blessing it is when having a dog in your house. Dogs are incredibly kind and compassionate. They have, more than once, proven how intelligent they are and how quickly they can learn and acquire new skills and habits. Dogs are also very protective of their owners and anyone they have shared the house with, they are known for being brave and willing to sacrifice their own safety in order to protect those who they love. So it’s fair to say that dogs are way, way more than just pets. They are lifetime companions, and always the best friends you could ask for in those times of trouble.
However, having a dog at home is not always just for fun times or for security. Dogs can be of great help for people who have certain disabilities or diseases. There are lots of examples of people who need help dogs, for example blind people need guide dogs, disabled people need mobility assistance dogs, while some others need psychiatric assistance dogs, and as for those who have diabetes, they need medical response dogs, who react to blood sugar levels and could also be trained to help with medication or bringing someone to help in times of emergency.
And this is exactly the case with Liam and his dog. Liam is a Type 1 Diabetes patient, and as you’re about to see in the video, his medical response assistance dog warns him whenever his blood sugar level gets dangerously high. Max was trained by Canyon Crest K9 training center, and he is a very talented dog. Without him, Liam’s life would be much harder!
