Puppies Behind Bars

It may sound harsh, the name Puppies Behind Bars, but it is a successful programme for rehabilitation of prisoners in high security jails in New York State in the USA. The pups are trained by the prisoners to become police dogs and the like, while the prisoners have a useful purpose during their time behind bars and learn to take responsibility and aquire skills that are asked for on the outside. I believe this is great. It is yet another example of how dogs make very valuable contributions to the human society. Programmes like this may prove useful in other countries as well.
