The dogs that sniff out cancer

A dog owner says her labrador saved her life - by sniffing out her breast cancer. Allison Powell, 48, started to feel unwell and noticed her four-year-old labrador Missy acting "strangely" and pawing at her left breast.

After months of pestering the mum-of-one decided to go for a check - and doctors found a small lump. Allison was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer and she underwent a life-saving double mastectomy. She said: "I've been truly lucky that my cancer was caught so early. If Missy hadn't alerted me to it, I might not be here today. I owe everything to Missy".
