Puppies Behind Bars: Training Puppies to Change Lives
We don’t usually go in for cute, cuddly AND furry, but this book by Paul Solberg and Christopher Makos is full of heartwarming images of dogs that make a difference. Puppies Behind Bars: Training Puppies to Change Lives is a photographic look at an eighteen-week training program where eight-week-old puppies are placed with prison inmates who care for them. Once the training is complete, the puppies go on to work as service dogs in individual settings or government placements. It is definitely a feel-good program, but the pictures go further in opening our eyes to the power of the bond between man and dog.
