Default Terrier on death row gets 2nd chance in people prison

Terrier on death row gets 2nd chance in people prison

GADSDEN, Ala. - Since Rusty's been in jail, he has been rehabilitated.

The long-legged black and white Jack Russell Terrier mix was scared, literally shaking at the touch of a human when he was taken to the jail as part of a training program through the Humane Society of Etowah County, Alabama.

Rusty was on death row at the animal shelter when given a second chance.
Dog trainer Carrie Gamblin says its good for the inmates' self-esteem since dogs give them unconditional love and don't look at them as if they've done something wrong.

And it's been great for Rusty too.

He now responds to commands and is friendly with visitors observing the program. In about a month or six weeks, dogs like Rusty will have the training to make them more suitable for adoption.

On September 22, 2003, my better half came home after 657 days in an Alabama prison!!!

And he's now forever free - passing away from this life and into the next - on January 9, 2010.
