    I got a Jackabea when she was 8 weeks old. Cutest pup! Her litter mate looked to all tan beagle. Mother was all white terrier. I had her sleep up by my head because she was so small. By the time she was 3 months old she would wake me up if my blood sugar would drop. She just turned 2 and she sleeps on bed and if my blood sugar drops she will shake the bed to wake me. She is a wonderful dog for me and extremely smart.

      We rescued a male Jackabee almost two years ago now. They told us he was 11 months old when we first got him, but about a month later, they sent us updated information, telling us he was only five months old. Given how much he’d grown, we figured he couldn’t have been 11 months old.

      Your post caught my attention because I’m a Type 1 diabetic as well, and I get the benefit of a dog that can identify when your blood sugar level drops. That’s pretty cool.

      Barkley, our Jackabee, is an incredible jumper! Here he is jumping over a 42-inch high fence at the dogpark (without even touching it!!!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pFL1yLMci8

      And here he is (with my other pup, a raggle, or rat terrier / beagle mix) jumping up into a tree…. Watch the fourth jump! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28KmurNlLqs
