HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — Roxbury Correctional Institution near Hagerstown is expanding a program that began five years ago, giving inmates the responsibility of training shelter dogs.
The Happy Hounds program allows inmates to train rescued shelter dogs for adoption. It’s expanding from six dogs to ten.
“The program is for either shelter or rescue dogs where they’ve been involved in abusive situations,” said Roxbury Warden, Richard Miller.
