Jailbirds, also known as Paulie Shackles, were enemy guards Sly Cooper encountered in Mesa City. They were gray basset hounds that wore an orange jumpsuit and gold necklaces with a "$" sign on them. Their weapon of choice was the ball-and-chain shackled to their ankle, which they used as a flail to swing at their enemies. If used in succession, they would laugh while swinging their ball-and-chain before accidentally hitting themselves with them. If they couldn't find any intruders, they would spend hours gnawing on their chains whilst keeping an eye out for the law.


  • Sly's Binocucom says that they hate Coopers and Coppers.
  • Ironically, their suit is more similar to the inmates that wear orange inmate suits with addition of a ball and chain, rather than as a normal guard.
