In Prison Puppies, young readers will meet the hardworking dogs in the Puppies Behind Bars program. This organization teaches prison inmates to raise puppies that will later work as service dogs for people living with disabilities. The prisoners teach the dogs the skills they'll need to assist their future owners, from basic commands like "come here" and "sit," to more complicated tasks like opening doors and turning lights on and off. The puppies teach the prisoners, too! Working with the dogs teaches prisoners patience, responsibility, and cooperation, and gives them a chance to contribute to society in a positive way. Packed with real-life stories and dramatic, full-color photos of prison pups, this book is sure to be a favorite of dog lovers everywhere.
