    Well, my wife has finally gotten her second dog.

    This is Clover. She is was part of a prison dog training program. Still a bit rough around the collar and somewhat scared of smooth floors. Yes, it does appear that she has a bowl growing out of her back.



    She gets along well with our cats. Still not sure about her interaction with Apple ( out first dog ).

    Aaawwww! That's a cute dog! She looks very intelligent, and hopefully the roughness can be turned into loyalty and love.

    Why is she scared of smooth floors? Does she slip out or something? What is prison dog training? Making sure prisoners don't escape or something? That would explain some of the hard edges.

    Beautiful dog...

    Looks like 1/2 German shepard and 1/2 Pit bull (IMHO). Expect an EXTREMELY intelligent dog. My last dog Ripley was 1/2 Pit Bull and Dingo. She unfortunately is living with my ex-wife and not me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    The bowl is her water dish. The photo was taken just after we got her home.

    The prison program is where dogs are brought in to learn basic obedience and are trained by the inmates. I will see if I can find more info on the program.

    Let me know if the photo still doesn't work. I can send it via a pm or post elsewhere.

    That is really cool, how they give the inmates something to do like that. Ive heard of recreation but I've never heard of a prison dog training program until you mentioned it.

    That is a very cute dog! How old is she?

    I also think the dog training program is a great idea. I think all inmates should have to help out the community in some way. These types of programs teach them that there's more to life than crime and makes them useful rather than just a burden on society. I think there should be more programs like it.
