Dogs trained to detect diabetes

SAN ANTONIO - A Texas organization is training puppies to detect diabetes.

Drey's Alert Dogs, in Jasper, trains the animals to paw at people when they can smell that their blood sugar is below 80 or above 180.

The puppies are first placed with children to socialize them.

The alert dogs are already helping people all over the United States.
