Dogs and Prisoners Learning Valuable Lessons from Each Other

YouTube Link

This video is actually a trailer for a documentary film called Dogs On the Inside. The documentary, which was filmed in a Massachusetts prison, follows the story of stray dogs in the community who were rescued and placed with prisoners at a minimum security prison. Before their rescues, the dogs were likely on a path to be euthanized in shelters. The goal of the program is for the prisoners to develop empathy and loving feelings toward the dogs, who in turn learn to trust humans in spite of any troubled histories they may have suffered. It seems to be situation benefiting both the dogs and the inmates.
