And people actually believe that a puppy is capable of doing that. Did ya'll read the comment section? Common Sense... not so common anymore...

eww I'll have to look for the email I didn't see it this just boggles my mind that people would think a 7 week old puppy could alert?

And isn't it illegal to cross state lines with a puppy under 8 weeks?

This is the email I sent to the reporter, my limited knowledge, but hope I got him thinking.

Quote:

Dear Joe,

Since I am not a subscriber to the Day.com, I thought I'd email you about your article on the 7 week old puppy/ diabetic alert dog article you wrote.


Nice article, but having some limited knowledge of alert dogs, I hope these people aren't being scammed. Your article implies this 7 week old puppy is already "trained" and "alerting" , which is really imposible or a fluke for a 7 week old puppy to do. A 7 week old puppy of any breed has the attention span of a gnat.


There is also no way this 7 week old puppy is going to "alert" 1/2 a mile away thru a building.


If he does, it will be a true miracle and frankly , he'd be worth a heck of lot more than 5 grand.


One last thing, I believe it may be illegal to cross state lines with a puppy under 8 weeks of age.


It's great they have found a puppy for this boy, but I wouldn't place my son's life in the 'paws' of a 7 week old puppy . I'd tell those parents they still better check on their child at nite for quite a few nites to come.

A great read and one most should know about with many claims about our service type animals; especially this type of claim at 7 weeks....... Seizure-Alert Dogs--Just the Facts, Hold the Media Hype | epilepsy.com

I will have to read that more thoroughly but that is common knowledge. The dogs threshold comes into play as far as whether or not the dog works that odor to source exhibits FTR IN THE FRINGE a distance away from source.

Sandra, thank you for your e-mail. It’s the second one I have received today….

Guess the other e-mail was yours.

Diane, it is illegal to cross state lines with an under-aged animal, just as it is illegal to do so without the proper health paperwork from a licensed veterinarian. I'm pretty sure that it is illegal in CT to sell or adopt a puppy/kitten that is under 8 weeks old. How did they manage to get around that law? I think the parents are reading too much into the puppy's actions. At 7 weeks he would have to go to the bathroom several times during the night, his scratching was most likely his attempt to get out of the crate to go potty, and not a response to low blood sugar.
