A Kent-based charity which trains dogs to help people with diabetes is asking for 'puppy parents' to come forward to look after the animals while they are being trained.
The dogs then go on to live with people who have diabetes to help them in potentially life-saving ways as 'Diabetic alert dogs'.
For his report, Andy Dickenson met 16-year-old Sophie, who has diabetes, and her dog Scoobie. The girl and dog have been the best of friends for years. Watch the report below.
