Mr. Gibbs the puppy saved the life of a toddler who has a rare lung disease that makes it difficult for her to breathe.
Alida, 3, was diagnosed with a rare lung disease as an infant called Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia. The condition makes it difficult to breathe so she has to wear an oxygen mask at all times.
Her fix-it dad made her a cart to pull around with the oxygen tank so Alida could be mobile in the house, but it was still difficult for her to play outside like a regular, energetic kid.
That's where Mr. Gibbs comes in.
Mr. Gibbs, Alida's service dog, has a harness that allows him to carry his little human friend's oxygen tank when she plays in the yard. He is still a puppy so he is able to keep up with Alida running around the yard and even going down the slide together!
