HAGERSTOWN, Md. —Prison seems like an unusual place to find the story of man's best friend, but behind bars is where you'll find inmate John Sexton and America's VetDog, Raven.
The Baltimore Ravens named her. The team sponsors her through a program with America's VetDogs. Sexton teaches her all sorts of skills that will one day help a veteran or first responder.
Raven is learning useful tasks like opening the refrigerator and retrieving items inside, learning wheelchair assistance and shutting the lights on and off.
"They can get the credit cards or the keys if you drop them -- whatever somebody drops -- but I think connection to the veteran is just as important as the task is," Sexton said.
