Search: Woman says dog sniffed out her cancer

Sharon Rawlinson from the United Kingdom credits her dog, Penny, (what breed is she?) for saving her life. Rawlinson says she found out she had cancer (what kind?) after Penny kept sniffing her chest. According to her doctors, Penny had been smelling an area where an aggressive tumor was growing (what did Rawlinson say she felt?). She is now set to start chemotherapy and have the tumor removed this week (which disease are dogs being trained to sniff out?).

  • We had an older dog and a younger one. The younger would sniff a certain area, The older one almost died from it.
    The tw we no have will sniff ears if they are infected or just plain in need of cleaning and will lick them to try and clean them sometimes.
    Beau know which part of our legs or arms are having arthritis events and will lay his warm body against us in that spot.

    I used to have a manx that would do similar things.

  • My cancer was found in my annual mammogram. It was caught early enough that I only had surgery and radiation.
