JACKSON - Inmates at Dixon Correctional Institute are helping some dogs get a new "leash" on life.

The puppies stay for 16 months and get domestic training.  They are then sent to Orlando, and given to handicapped people.

This saves the person receiving the dogs the expense of getting the dogs trained.

News 2's Stephanie Ryan will have the story on News 2 at 6.
