WATCH: Therapy Dog Helps Three-Year-Old with Lung Condition

Alida Knobloch from Loganville, Ga. is a three-year-old who suffers from a rare lung condition known as neuroendocrine hyperplasia in infancy (NEHI), making it difficult for her to breathe on her own.

Her condition requires her to carry an oxygen tank around just to be able to breathe. Luckily, she’s now getting some help from her dog, “Mister Gibbs.”

Alida’s parents told Fox News Atlanta that Mister Gibbs carries her oxygen tanks on his back and has been trained to follow the girl everywhere she goes.

Despite Alida’s medical condition, her family remains committed to helping her live a normal life.

The Knobloch’s are raising funds for research into NEHI. Click HERE to donate to the cause.
