Shugga's journey started in Texas on Aug 31, 2012, where his training to become a Diabetic Alert Dog began in his very first few months of life. He trained for a year until he met his
"Chosen 1" (Type 1 Diabetic) in July 2013. She and her husband came to Texas to meet Shugga and then off to Los Angeles they went. Shugga's transition to the city life was work but he has learned to love the daily adventures with his T1D. At the age of 5 1/2, he's graying some as he keeps up with his 24/7 love of battling blood sugars. Check out some of his adventures below!
