Molly Polly is a fluffy little silky terrier with a massive heart. Her family wanted an alert dog to help save one of their type 1 diabetes twins lives. This little twin, Hannah, was 3 years old and hypoglycaemic (hypo) unaware. Being hypo unaware increases her chance of slipping into a coma and dying. Other assistance dog organisations refused to help due to Hannah’s age.
Hannah’s identical twin, Olivia, suffered from PTSD and anxiety because she was so stressed that her twin – Hannah might die. So Hannah’s family decided to get a dog and train it themselves to be a diabetic alert dog. They knew that a dog could bond with their twins and make their lives a little bit happier – and maybe even save one of the twins.
