Toby, a canine hero

Toby, a canine hero

Children have to know how to take care of their pets, and thus, well trained, they will become their great allies forming a great team.


Pepe, a child with childhood diabetes, and his family visit a farm-school where puppies are trained to take care of people and carry out many important missions. This little dog, through his sense of smell, has learned to detect if there is a problem with the child’s health. When the family learns how to treat the puppy, they take him home, where they enjoy their coexistence and little adventures. But the day Pepe needs him, Toby shows what a good companion he is and how well trained he is.


This story shows us the interaction of puppies with children suffering from any disease. How the animals help them to avoid loneliness, increasing their self-esteem, promoting their social activity and encouraging them to exercise. It has been proved that this lowers their levels of cortisol, a hormone related to stress, therefore reducing pain and anxiety. This is important for curing diseases and, sometimes, healing people’s souls. Children have to know how to take care of their pets, and thus, well trained, they will become their great allies, forming a great team.
