“I didn’t realise what was happening, but Smudge seemed to pick up on the danger and kept nudging me until I stopped and sat down.
“I finally took notice and realised myself what was wrong. I managed to get my blood sugar levels under control and was able to safely get back home.
“The most incredible part of this story is that Smudge has had no training in detecting when I need help with my diabetes – he’s learnt it all by himself and I’m eternally grateful that Smudge was able to help me and save me from a potentially life-threatening situation.”
