Max the dog sееmed depressed, and Maureen couldn’t figuгe out why, until she went to the doctor.
Dogs are incredible animals for so many reasons.They’re loyal, friendly, and loving, and they will stay by theг ow.ner’s side through thick and thin. But there are also some biological aspects that set dogs apart from the rest.
Compared to humans, dogs have a greater sense of smell. For .instance, dogs can smell what’s inside a fridge before you even open it. They know when the.y’re getting a doggie treat because they can sense where the food is.
It turns out, dogs can smell so much more than just food. A red collie named Max is proof of that.
Max enjoyed pla.ying with his owner Maureen. The two would venture out for a walk, and it would always be a f.un and exciting experience for the pup.
However, one day, he start.ed acting strange. He always looked sad and out of energy.
At that time, Maureen didn’t know what to do. He refused to sit on her lap. Max no longer got excited whenever they we.nt out for a walk. He just stared at her with sadness in his eyes and tapped on her breast with his nose.
Just when she was a.bout to give up with Max, she realized what he was trying to tell her. She immediately contacted doctor to have the small lump in her breast checked.
When the mammogram results came, Maureen was a bit confused. Doct.ors said everything was normal. One day, after she saw the looks in Max’s eyes, she knew it was cancer.
Although the initial checks turned out to be negative, a surgical biopsy helped her diagnose her illness.
After the lump was removed, Max instantly transformed back into his old self. Thanks to the power of his nos.e, the worst thing that could have happened was prevented.
However, it’s not just Max who has extreme nose powers.
Today, more and more dogs are being trained to discover cancer.ous cells. So if you have dogs, be thankful and take good care of them. You never know, someday, they might be the one who will save your life.
Max is a truly incredible dog who did such an amazing job helping his owner. Thanks to Max’s nose, he and Maureen got to spend many happy years together.
