US 8th August 2010 A man from Michigan in the US who had refused to seek medical advice for his toe that had been infected for several weeks passed out in a drunken stupor after downing several alcoholic drinks in order to gain some Dutch courage to visit a doctor. He finally awoke to find his dog beside him, a pool of blood and one of his toes missing. He and his wife looked for the missing digit but it was nowhere to be found.

A trip to the hospital alerted doctors to the fact that he had been suffering from undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes and that what was left of the toe needed amputating as the infection had reached the bone. The Jack Russell had apparently sensed a problem in the toe while his owner slept and munched away at it eating away the infection which has effectively saved the man’s life.

The man has said the dog is his hero and that he has now been sworn off alcohol. He asked if he could have the rest of his toe that had been amputated to give to his dog as a reward. The dog is still with the family, but is being observed by authorities.
