Peanut-Sniffing Pitbull Keeps Human Pal Safe

A family pet has turned into a working dog. But it’s the breed and potential life saving task it performs that makes this story truly remarkable.
Parents with children who have severe peanut allergies know just how dangerous one mistake can be and as a result they often live their lives in a constant state of fear. A family in New York will soon be able to breath a little easier thanks to a transformation that is taking place in San Diego.

The folks at Bad Rap, who posted this of FB, said it all:
Look at this pup who's been trained to keep her young ward safe by searching for peanut products. The remarkable thing about this story is not that the dog, Layla, happens to be a pit bull mix (as the story mentions), but this is just a dog adopted from a shelter and found to having amazing potential. How many similar stories could be written for shelter dogs everywhere? Perhaps Elmer's story will be written next!
As the proud person of a pitbull, I agree.
