Pit bull rescues 4-year-old suffering blood sugar crash
The dog sensed something was wrong with the boy when he wouldn't wake up and alerted the boy's mother in the middle of the night
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Less than a week after rescuing a pit bull that would have been put down, a Minnesota mother says the dog returned the favor by detecting a dangerous drop in her son's blood sugar and rescuing the young boy from a life-threatening situation.
Christi Smith took in TatertTot just hours before he was scheduled to be put down by Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. She planned to foster the four-legged friend until she could find him a permanent home, but she says he's already become family for good.
When watching Peyton Anderson play with his dog, it's clear the two have a special bond — but Smith didn't know how special that bond was until last week when the pooch alerted her that the 4-year-old was not well in the middle of the night.
