  • dfs Crufts 2011 Friends for Life - Rebecca and Shirley

  • Medical Detection dog, Shirley -- the Labrador which detects low blood sugar levels in seven-year old Rebecca from Northampton who has aggressive type 1 diabetes. She is the first Blood Sugar Detection Dog in the UK to be allowed into a main stream primary school and performs the potentially life saving task of detecting a possible hypoglycaemic attack which could leave Rebecca in a coma. Now, school is much less of a worry and Rebecca's mother, Claire has had the fear taken out of night-times, as Shirley keeps a bedside vigil.
