Description

Warrior is a rescue saved from death row when she was just days old. Once she arrived home and settled in, she started to show her true personality and what she was capable of doing with no training at all. I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for 44 years now, one morning Warrior awoke me out of a low blood sugar reaction by rubbing her cold nose all over my body and licking my face, she would not stop until I sat up and knew I was able to get up. She has had no training for this and has done the same thing 3 times since then. Her first instance of this was when she was 7 months old, still a baby. I am planning to get her schooling started so she can go on to get her CGC, then on to become my service dog for diabetes. She has a lot of training ahead of her but she has the instinct to do it and I know she will accomplish it.
