New Leash On Life USA rescues dogs that are having a hard time being adopted at their animal shelter and may possibly be facing euthanasia. These dogs are placed in a prison and paired with two inmates who are responsible for dog care and training 24/7 for 11 weeks. The prisoners are working with the dogs on different behaviors to get the dogs ready to pass the Canine Good Citizen test from the American Kennel Club.
