Rescue dogs for K-9 units

This weekend, when I watched the NBC Nightly News program, I saw a heart-warming animal interest story. It's about this woman who rescued stray dogs, rehabbed them into K-9 dogs, and then relocate to work with police officers. She started the Throwaway Dog Project out in Philadelphia. She's also on Facebook, too. This does give me a future storyline idea for my novels, since most of my dream-based novels came from real life stories. (Venom and Diplomatic Immunity aren't one of them.) Don't you love these kind of stories? I've included the link to see the clip to see for yourself. Let me know what you think.
They say you can't teach an old dogs new tricks, but an operation in Philadelphia is proving that rescue dogs abandoned at kennels can be taught to do just that as police dogs.

What a wonderful thing for her to do for the dogs. Gives them a chance at a better life and helps the police as well. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed day

What a great idea. I'm sure many of these dogs could have a very useful life if they were given half a chance.

This is a wonderful story. Dogs once abandoned having a new lease on life is priceless.

I have always pondered being involved in something like this. I need to learn more about handling and training dogs though

Dogs are wonderful animals. And they're often treated so poorly by humans, it's good to know there are good people after all.

@velvet53 I do remember. But they might put them in a shelter like a ranch. I might post the link to it today.

Isn't it nice to actually see something good in the news over all of the bad stuff they usually report?

It can be a good topic for a novel too! People like that woman who rescued stray dogs should be emulated for rehabilitating the dogs and helping them become members of the K-9 unit.

It can be as soon as I figure it out or dream it. Not sure if it'll be a mystery/cozy or a thriller. I agree.
