BEACON, NEW YORK: A puppy calendar hangs on the wall of the cell of one of the prisoners in the Puppies Behind Bars program at Fishkill Correctional Facility.  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. Fishkill Correctional Facility is a medium security prison in New York with 22 men in the puppy program.
