Christy went over the dogs in the graduating class and one day Mamoran, his fiancé and children drove over to the Forestry Camp to meet Trenton.

“He listened to me right away,” Mamoran said. “Even though he didn’t know me he obeyed a couple of commands. The kids fed him a couple of times.

“It was kind of like love at first sight, I guess.”

And back home, after a few days?

“The kids love him and I can’t get enough of him,” Mamoran said.

He and his family have also learned quickly a valuable lesson imparted following graduation, when the inmate training teams review a series of commands that have been integral in the training during the prior eight weeks.

“We’ve been doing his training just like they showed us,” Mamoran said after acknowledging that Trenton faltered a couple of times on commands on which he was reminded daily.
