"Esmerelda is loving and loves to go on long walks. She loves to play with other dogs and to get belly rubs." Dog Associate Esmerelda is currently enrolled in the New Leash on Life training program. Through the New Leash on Life program they are trained in basic obedience including house training. While in training they are not allowed visitors. This is prison policy not ours. I visit the prison once a week to check on their progress and watch the training. They can be adopted at any time but cannot leave the prison until graduation.
