Michael Vick to Adopt a New Dog? Not So Fast!

Thursday, July 19, 2012 - 1:30pm

It's true. We don't think Michael Vick would make a good doggie parent. The NFL superstar recently claimed on Piers Morgan Tonight that he's interested in getting a dog. Call us crazy, but we don't think it's a good idea. Far from it.

Despite spending 19 months in prison for running an illegal interstate dog fighting business, Vick hasn't expressed a shred of empathy toward the dogs he brutalized and killed. And rather than talk about the horrors of dog fighting, he has consistently chosen to focus on the consequences of getting caught.

In a nutshell, his actions are self-serving. We've seen little remorse and even less compassion. And let's not forget, he caused unspeakable suffering to hundreds of innocent dogs. Frankly, the ASPCA has serious concerns about Vick's ability to be a responsible pet parent.

Don't you?

i agree he was never a real pet parent and i agree he shouldnt have a second chance thats like giving murderers another chance to murder... he should def be flagged by any adoption agency... buuttt you know how our world works...hell probably get a dog either way

I thought part of his sentence involved a ban on owning any animal. But I am in agreement with everyone's comment. He should not be allowed to have a pet, of any kind. That's my opinion. I also think part of the proceeds of his book should go to a SPCA or rescue group. All the money should go to charity, but you know that won't happen.

You can't take a "hood" out of a "hoodlum!" No dogs for Vick!

He should definately not be allowed to own another dog. 3 years was just not enough time to be restricted from the ownership of a pet. I agree with mostly everyone on here, he shouldn't be allowed to own a dog for the rest of his life. For him to kill dogs and not be sickened by his own actions, he's insane and it would be a terrible decision to allow this man to own another dog.

He is one of the most disgusting human beings on earth. A second chance? How about the dogs he murdered? Did they get a second chance. He makes me want to vomit!

DO NOT LET HIM HAVE A DOG, ANY DOG. WHOEVER DOES SHOULD BE SHOT!!!

THIS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED. HE IS A KILLER, MURDERER, AND WILL JUST HURT THESE DOGS AGAIN LIKE HE IS USE TO DOING........THE MAN HAS PROBLEMS IS MENTALLY ILL!!!!!!

I know GOOD people who've been turned down because of their work schedules. The rescue that approves this adoption application is done. Could never live it down & say goodbye to their donors.

Evil son of a gun he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a dog again let alone be able to adopt one :-(

He is incapable of showing or having compassion when it comes to pets! Not only should he NOT be allowed to ever own animals again but he should never had been able to play football again. When you become famous you have a moral obligation to do well in the lime light. Children and young adolescents look up to you. He smashed all kinds of moral codes when he ran a multi warehouse business in Dog fighting and claims " he thought it was a sport" Letting dogs viciously attack each other to the death is nothing short of sociopathic! I could go on but that covers all my main bases

He should never own pets. Just like pedophiles can't be near kids he should not be near animals they are too vulnerable. Once an abuser always an abuser!
