It’s Confirmed: Michael Vick Has a New Dog

Friday, October 12, 2012 - 5:45pm

It’s confirmed: Michael Vick has a new dog. To truly become a model of the type of behavior Vick wishes to teach his children—that animals deserve to be treated with compassion and respect—Vick should take the opportunity to “break the cycle” and “be an instrument of positive change” by expressing remorse about the dogs he brutalized and killed with his own hands. This is something that we’ve never heard him do publically.

Because of this, we have serious concerns about Vick’s ability to be a responsible pet owner. We can only hope that he will set the right example for his children by teaching them to foster humane habits and a lifelong bond with their family pet. 

What’s your opinion?

Michael Vick should NEVER--NEVER have been allowed to own a pet. Let him explain to his kids why they cannot have a pet.

Can I republish your post?

He never apologized to the dogs or expressed remorse for hurting them. He had a long list of people that he apologized to...not the dogs. That says everything right there. He chose not to apologize to them. I'm sure that he had advisors that asked him to do so before the press conference... think about it.

To those who believe Vick should have a dog because he paid his dues and changed- what kind of world do you live in? The kind I live in is one where when a parent murders or severely abuses their children they do NOT get the others, or them back, and they lose their parental rights. He should NOT be given a second chance at having another dog. Bad enough any team would welcome him. He's a sick man. People will torture animals are scary. One common bing amongst ceriql killers, Oren sociopaths and psychopaths, tortured animals. He should be locked up.

What kind of moron would allow "it" to own a dog ? The same type of morons that allowed "it" back in the nfl..The same type of morons that paid "it" to make their team the laughing stock of losers (idiots).. All those morons are motivated by greed..They could care less about torture or the brutal deaths those dogs suffered literally at "its" hands.. "it" should've lost all rights to children and pets, forever.. other people lose their kids for much less than that.. "it" spent a short time sitting in jail, that does not constitute paying a debt..I don't see a bit of remorse from "it"..except "its" sorry "it" was caught..The justice system failed society and "its" children by not making this a landmark case by changing the severity and sentencing to make such cruel acts closer to the legal definition of murder.."it" should still be in jail and be sitting there another 10 years.. "it" has a name..but only ever should be remembered for "its" vicious, barbaric and cowardly nature.. michael vicious sic vick..the thug..the ghetto freak boy..the scumbag who gets his jollies off by killing with his bare hands..the coward that will never be a man..the serial dog killer..the bottom of the human gene pool..
The bible says to forgive when someone repents.. I don't believe the lip service.."it" kept maintaining innocence til "it" was forced by evidence to plea bargain.."it" lied.. "it" hasn't changed by anything I see.."it" will pay for "its" crimes, but not by the useless justice system.. "it" like we all will stand before our Creator..Then justice will be done..so til then, "it" better enjoy "its" short stint on earth or drastically change and get right with God.. "its" crimes are so horrendous, no person or animal should be at risk from "it"..but should, didn't happen..I believe this isn't the last cruel act we'll see of "it"..I hope I'm wrong but time will tell..

The only way to make it clear to the ASPCA that their decision to support Michael Vick is to not donate to them and to make sure that anyone you know doesn't donate to them. They are supposed to be advocating for animals, not Michael Vick.

Michael Vic felt no remorse. He thought the whole thing was a joke. And so did his friends. He isn't going to change. I only hope he doesn't mistreat this sweet dog when no ones looking. Dog fighting can be deep rooted and nothing is wrong with it in their eyes. He may only torture this dog due to resentment of getting caught. Or take it out on the dog when he's having a bad day. NO-most definitely Michael Vic should NEVER HAVE AN ANIMAL AGAIN!

I cant believe this. I have lost all respect for the ASPCA.. He's a murdered. ..and should nvr be allowed to be alone with any animals period... and he's given a pit pup... Whats next convicted child molesters and pedophiles to be given babies. Become foster parent's. ..

Michelle

He should be banned for LIFE to never own another pet again. He is a piece of garbage.

"Publically?" Seriousally?
