[show]Big Boo has a dog in prison. Viewers who wonder how an inmate can have a dog may not be aware that in the United States, many real-life prisons participate in programs in which inmates foster and train dogs for discrete time periods. These programs have several benefits for both the inmates and the dogs. For the dogs, they help alleviate animal shelter overcrowding and therefore reduce the number of dogs that have to be put down. They provide a basic level of training and socialization for the dogs, and prepare them either to become pets or to continue training to become seeing-eye or other assistance dogs. For the inmates, the dogs-in-prisons programs provide training for potential post-incarceration jobs in animal services fields, as well as the companionship and therapeutic and mental health benefits that contact with animals can bring.
