Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law-abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life-changing prison can really be.
For a while, Big Boo (Lea DeLaria) has a dog in prison. Many US prisons have programs that allow inmates to foster and train dogs for discrete time periods. These programs have several benefits for both the inmates and the dogs. They help alleviate animal shelter overcrowding, reduce the number of dogs that have to be euthanized. They provide a basic level of training and socialization for the dogs, preparing them to become pets or to continue training to become assistance dogs. The programs also provide training for potential post-incarceration jobs in animal services fields, companionship, and therapeutic and mental health benefits.
