Aiden was diagnosed with diabetes when he was 3 years old. Since his diagonosis, Jenni Heath has had to check Aiden's blood-sugar levels three-four times each night, the family told The Valley Reporter. Having a service dog would mean a full night's sleep and peace of mind for Aiden.
Earlier this year, when Aiden was $9,000 shy of his goal, news coverage of his story brought in more than $20,000 in donations. Heath was able to put a down payment on a chocolate lab named Angel who was training to become a service dog in Nevada.
Jenni Heath told ABC News that the family watched Angel grow through photos and videos. Angel recently passed all her tests and arrived at the family's home Monday morning.
"Aiden is over the moon," Jenni Heath told ABC News. "He was on pins and needles waiting for her."
Family members said they are grateful for everyone's support throughout the process.
