Here & Now has spent the last year following Bailey, a budding service dog raised by the Western Massachusetts-based NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Services) organization.
During the week, NEADS are trained by, and live with, prison inmates (under the expert guidance of professional dog trainers). Then, on weekends, the dogs go to families.
In this segment, Bailey graduates from service dog training. Here & Now co-host Robin Young has our story.
