All 4 Pets: Dogs now helping out in courtrooms

Take a look at Molly the dog. 

She's helping prosecutors and witnesses in Virginia. Courthouse dogs such as Molly can assist anyone from crime victims to witnesses during stressful stages of legal proceedings. 

"It's a great way to get the information out of the victim, putting them at a minimal stress level and most beneficial for the prosecutor," said Janet Balser, victim-witness director. 

Dogs train for two weeks before the first day on the job.
