Isn't this just the cutest thing you have ever seen!?!?
So Andrew has Type 1 diabetes and Alpha's job is to alert him when his blood sugar is getting too low or high.
"The amazing thing about Alpha is that he knows 20 to 40 minutes before my blood sugar actually does go low or high due to his amazing sense of smell," he said.
"He has been a great companion and added a lot of happiness to my school's environment," Schalk said, "It brightens people's days seeing him in the halls or in my class and I love being able to have that effect on people."
We can't take it....too freaking cute!
