Dogs, inmates team up in Forsyth County Jail for a second chance
Jason Brewer, an inmate at the Forsyth County Jail, and his dog, Darla, go through training exercises on Monday, Sept. 30, 2019. Brewer and Darla are part of a program through the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office called "Pups with Purpose" that teams up inmates with rescued dogs in the hopes of training the dog to be adopted and giving inmates skills they can take with them after release. - photo by Ben Hendren
