Prison Pups:

They’re some of New Zealand’s worst criminals yet they’re finding unconditional love behind bars.

We go inside Auckland Women’s Correctional Facility to meet four offenders and their canine cellmates.

But these wonder dogs are helping hardened criminals, society and the disabled.

  1. Sounds like a great story. I have a friend who does therapy work with her dog, mainly with young offenders and troubled youth. It's how animals can heal and bring love to even hardened hearts.
