Hypo dog trains in prison

A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Pascoe sniffs out diabetes among inmates in the Junee Prison in southern New South Wales, Australia. Pascoe  is being trained to detect diabetes through changes in people’s breath or body odor. Sweet, fruity smells indicate high blood sugar levels while acidic smells mean low blood sugar levels. Once trained, he will be give to a family with a diabetic child. There he will service as a diabetic alert dog, warning the family and child of errant blood sugar levels.
