BEACON, NEW YORK: Bobbie, in prison for felony murder, trains 4-month-old Berth to be a service dog at Fishkill Correctional Facility as part of the Puppies Behind Program. The program works with prison inmates in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to train both explosive detection dogs and service dogs, including ones who help injured soldiers or those suffering from post traumatic stress. Bobbie has been in prison for 22 years. He has learned to put the needs of the puppy he is training before his own.
