In this Nov. 26, 2012 photo, inmate Hazard Wilson walks Yardley, a veteran assistance dog in training, on the grounds of Western Correctional Institution in Cresaptown, Md. Yardley is one of three dogs assigned since September to inmates at the maximum-security prison for basic training as service dogs for disabled military veterans. The inmates, who are also veterans, are among the state's first prisoners to join a national trend of training service dogs in correctional institutions. Professional trainers say prison-raised dogs tend to graduate sooner and at higher rates than those raised traditionally in foster homes because puppies respond well to the consistency and rigid schedules of prison life.
