BEACON, NEW YORK-AUGUST:  Tyrone and Andy walk their back prison ward after visiting visit sick prisoners. The patients look forward to the visits which are also used as a training exercise for the puppies as part of the Puppies Behind Bars 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. Fishkill Correctional Facility is a medium security prison in New York with 22 men in the puppy program.
