A new future awaits these dogs, and their trainers can be proud of the part they played in it. This month, six dogs graduated from Second Chance Pups. The program carefully matches canines from local shelters and rescues with individuals at the Nebraska State Penitentiary who train them in basic obedience, while providing human socialization and interaction with other dogs.
