Quail, a highly trained English Labrador retriever, isn’t just a 15-year-old boy’s best friend.
The Diabetic Alert Dog also is Christian Poorten’s lifeline.
She demonstrated that about a week ago by sensing that Christian’s blood sugar was dangerously low and awakening him from a sound sleep.
“I love her like she’s another human, probably like a sister,” said Christian, a freshman basketball player at Paradise Valley High School.
“It’s really special that she can detect when it happens,” he said.
“I was definitely shaking and sweating. I didn’t understand what was going on.”
