Old dogs and prisoners

Post by terra » 09 Jul 2017, 11:13

Today's good news story !
:cheers:
Retired Greyhounds being re-educated to be domestic pets...... and at the same time, prison inmates learning how to be responsible human beings.
It's a win/win for all concerned !
:good_one
I await comment from duke de la clink, our resident criminologist who can offer some expertise in these matters.
:wqoohoo

I'm told by a friend who has one, that they're very docile and undemanding pets.

Its a good part of the inmate rehabilitating themselves before
release where the real work begins, its a myth put forward by authorities
about rehab while in custody, no human being will ever accept the loss of liberty,
all we can do is manage by example as an alternative attitude to criminality, that
means you have to be consistent day after day, month about, year after year and
let me tell you its damned hard work but sometimes results in respect from the inmates
if you're lucky. :character-oldtimer:

The greys make excellent pets - they are actually couch potatoes only requiring about 20 mins exercise a day and if they have been retrained to be able to work in with small animals they get on fine with cats and smaller dogs as well. I have a friend who has greys and whippets and cats, and she fosters kittens. Her grey helps with the fostering and he loves the babies tumbling and playing around him. He is a very gentle man
