    She is about 9 months old.

    I cannot find any info online about the prison training program. I do know that there are several inmates that are head trainers with several other regular trainers. They do get paid for their work with the dogs. If I remember correctly, they can have a 100 or so animals at one time to train.

    They keep a log on each animal and mark down dates and amount of time for walks, food, play, when they eat, use the restroom, etc. A copy is available for the new owners. They also keep a journal on the dogs behavior each day.

    Clover was in the program about two months longer than most dogs. She is very nice, but has a tendency not to pay attention or obey her commands. However, she is much better than our pup Apple who should know many of the same commands, but is more interested in what the other dog is doing, or if there are any treats for her.

    I will keep looking for more information about the prison program.

    Unfortunatly, Clover had to go back. She was extremely agressive towards our male cat and had a few other problems we are just not able to deal with.

    Before we got Apple, I didn't not care much for dogs. It took a very long time before I was comfortable getting a dog and Apple really made me fall in love with the little buggers. I am very sad that we had to take here back. She slept in a sleeping bag with me last night as she doesn't like to sleep alone.

    She will make a great pet for someone as she was well behaived and very lovable. She just cannot be around cats.

    Yes, that's too bad she didn't work out for you. She's a nice looking dog.
    How about a dog that's smaller than your cat? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
