Elvis is an 8 year old black greyhound who had to leave the home he’s known for five years, through no fault of his own. What a love!  He is currently enrolled in the prison training program at the Manson Youth Institution.  While waiting for his classmate to arrive, Elvis has quickly become a favorite of everyone in the prison and the CPG volunteers.  If he’s not catching z’s or pets from the inmates during rec time, he’s going on rounds with the COs or hanging out in the Captain’s office (who says he’s a good listener).  Elvis has even spent some time with the Warden and Deputy Warden as they make their rounds of the prison and later in their offices!  He’s such a quiet, gentle, loving pup.  But he did, however, live up to his name when he tried to get too well acquainted with a volunteer’s female greyhound.  Another volunteer commented, “Well, he IS the king, after all.”
