Wildrose called us last week and said they had a adult Two year old alert dog that they thought would be perfect for E. We are so excited!!! Wildrose sent a trainer and Mallie to our house.....the trainer spent 4 days with us.

She has picked up lows before they even happened!

-One morning I woke up and brought Mallie outside brought her back in...... I went to the restroom came out and she started Alerting to me. I check Ean and he is 96. I am still building up our trust so I didn't want to wake E. I decided to take her for a walk then come back and check Ean again. I come back in and Ellis is up but not Ean so I quietly go into the bed room and to get Ellis. Mallie came in the room with me and started to alert me. I checked Ean and he was 69 .....40 minutes had passed between the first alert.

-She does a great jog alerting on Highs also!

Mallie is so sweet and so easy going. She is having to adjust to our loud family. It has been a full time job getting her use to our life style. Lots of work! I know the end result is going to be so worth it. I am in contact with Wildrose and they are helping get Mallie adjusted. Giving me the ins and outs of training.

Ean being so young he needs a easy going dog like Mallie. Mallie alerts a very soft just like her spirit. I know no dogs are perfect and Mallie gets scared very easy. We have to help her over come her fears of load noises. I think the end result is going to be such a wonderful tool in helping Ean with dangerous lows. Hopefully she will work out for our family and replace Jazz.... I am falling in love with her.

  1. Whoo Hoo! Sounds so exciting. I am so glad you were able to get a dog sooner than expected. Did I miss why you weren't getting Jazz?

  3. Jennifer, nothing is wrong with Jazz..... Wildrose just thought that Ean would do better with a older dog. Mallie is two years old calm and way out of the puppy stage. Jazz would be young when we would get her around 11 months or so.
