4 years ago, Aiden Heath discovered that he had type 1 diabetes – and that he could get a service dog to help him manage it.
Even though certified service dogs usually cost up to $15,000, Aiden’s mom Jenni told him to start saving his pennies and he would be there in no time.
That’s when they adopted Angel, a chocolate Labrador who had passed all of her service tests.
With Angel by Aiden’s side, she will be able to smell his blood sugar drop thirty minutes before a meter would ever register the change – she is also the best friend a boy could ask for.
“Aiden looked at me and said, ‘This is a dream,’” Jenni told WABC. “We have been so amazed by the outpouring of support,” Jenni Heath said. “He is feeling the love. … There are no words.”
