NEW YORK – Daniel Riley was born with sort 1 diabetes. 

He doesn’t let it sluggish him down, though.  

Whereas Riley, 9, performs sports and leads a traditional boy’s life, he has to examine his blood sugar periodically to ensure he does not endure diabetic ketoacidosis, which happens if his body doesn’t make enough insulin. It almost killed him when he was 2 years previous.

With the help of Sundance, a Golden retriever specially educated to sense a drop or rise in blood sugar levels, Riley would have a warning 30 minutes before going low or high, better than what he is able to do now together with his pods.

“It helps me monitor my blood sugar and it helps me stay a cheerful life,” Riley told WABC.

Nevertheless, Sundance is denied becoming a member of Riley at college till the town provides approval of the service animal. 

“The (Department of Schooling) is reviewing the small print of the request to find out the level of involvement that’s required as this can be a nonpublic faculty,” the city told WABC

Riley hopes to take Sundance with him before faculty ends June 23.
