Dog Saves Owner’s Life (Feel Good Video Of The Day)

dog detects owner's cancerThose of us who have (or had) dogs already know they’re incredible companions. For Maureen, her dog Max ended up saving her life. Her dog smelled her cancer- a lump in her breast- that neither a scan nor a mammogram picked up.

The lump was only found when doctors performed a biopsy. It turns out dogs can smell the chemicals that cancerous tumors emit. Maureen said her dog went from sad to happy as soon as she got the lump removed. This is a sweet video. It’s also incredible. I’ve heard about dogs for people with epilepsy but not for diabetes or other illnesses. They truly are our best friends!
