Take this Chris McCarron for instance. The 69-year-old suffers from diabetes. He is from Motherwell, North Lanarkshire and his one true companion is his Rottie. When his son, Chris Jnr, died from heart issues just at the age of 43, Chris was devastated. He got a dog from the shelter. When he first saw the rescue dog, a Rottweiler, he did not think of adopting it. He was too old – 6 years already. But when the two looked at each other, something clicked. They had to be together.

But there is another memory of Jack. One day, the protective Rottie saw that Chris was not coming out for his morning walk. So, Jack slithered into the bedroom and found him lying down. Quite concerned, the Protective Rottie lapped the hanging hand of Chris and he came around. He felt like a drunkard. He was taken to the hospital and it was found that his sugar levels were dangerously low. At around 2.5, when it should be at 7. The doctors mentioned that if there was any delay, he may not have survived.
