Dexter and Medical Tourism

We have a small dog. He is a chihuahua mix and has an interesting backstory. He is a rescue who took us to his previous handler, often when he was first adopted. I mean the handler part. Dexter is a retired Coast Guard dog who was medically retired. He has a nasty case of atopic dermatitis.

He redirected his training for bomb and drug detection to alerting when my sugars drop. So he is a state-certified service dog.
