Dogs are famous for their loyalty, affection, and intelligence. They do not think twice about putting their lives in danger to save their owner’s life in dangerous situations. But sometimes, they can be lifesavers when it is not an outside threat. This story is about a dog who saved his human best friend’s life even though she was not a service dog.
Daisy is the closest friend of the Troilo family.
The young boy’s best friend and protector is Daisy. She is a 2-year-old Rottweiler pup who joined his family two years ago. She has an unusual nightly routine. Most dogs enjoy eating meals or playing with toys, but Daisy’s favorite part of the day is snuggling up next to her human brother to sleep. She has been inseparable from him since she joined the family as a young puppy.
According to Daisy’s mom, Brittany Troilo, the Rottweiler pup sleeps beside her brother every night and loves being around him constantly. Daisy and her brother enjoy playing together during the day. But when the clock says it is 8:30 p.m., Daisy knows it is time for her special bedtime routine. She first waits by the stairs. As soon as her brother’s bedtime routine starts, she jumps on the bed and snuggles up to him.
Daisy is an intelligent protector of the boy.
The young boy has type 1 diabetes. Daisy was seated alertly next to Troilo’s bed one night when she awoke at 2 a.m. Troilo immediately recognized something was wrong. Daisy alerted her family when she sensed her brother was having an emergency.
Since then, she has been aware of his medical condition and monitors him by waking Troilo up if his sugar levels are off. She is even aware of the medical equipment on her brother’s body and knows not to touch the Dexcom glucose tracker he uses at night. Daisy’s intelligence and awareness have proven invaluable in keeping her brother safe.
Dogs can also be trained to assist people with various medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, autism, or PTSD. They can alert their owners before an episode occurs or provide comfort during one. Some dogs can detect cancer by smelling changes in human breath or urine. Dogs are genuinely remarkable animals that deserve our love and respect. They can improve our lives in many ways sometimes even saving them.
Soon a new puppy named Lilly came to the family. Playtime with her new sister is Daisy’s new obsession. But even with the new pup around, Daisy knows it is time to start getting ready for bed at 8:30 p.m. and will drop everything to snuggle up with her human brother. Daisy’s story shows how dogs can sense when their humans are in danger and act accordingly. Daisy’s love and affection for her brother have touched the hearts of many. She is not just a furry friend but also a protector, and her loyalty and devotion to her human brother have made her a special family member.
