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?

NO! He should not be allowed to adopt a dog. In fact, he should not EVER be able to have an animal in his care at any time. He has no remorse for his awful behavior and even if he had regular visits from an animal control officer, there are many things that he can do to harm an animal when no one is around. The point is, he does not appreciate the companionship and love that a pet can provide. He views dogs as disposable objects because they are not human and so should never be allowed the privilege of caring for any. He lacks the ability to care......


NO way should this animal own an another animal. I don't understand why he's out of jail. I really don't understand why an another football team whould had signed him to their team. He is a murderer, a criminal and should have lost everything. I wish him the same death as all of the dogs that he killed. PLEASE DO NOT LET HIM OWN AN ANIMAL HE WILL ONLY KILL IT. I don't care about his growing up in a bad environment, he had it all and he blow it. He has no compassion for life. He has done unspeakable horrid things to living creatures. Those animals deserved so much better.

How can he possibly be allowed to adopt a dog??? I'm stunned. It never entered my mind that a person who has tortured and killed hundreds of dogs could ever be allowed to keep a dog again - EVER!

What kind of example would that put on the rest of the world? That fame and money make you exempt from things? He was charged with felony dog fighting....felony charges of dog abuse and neglect causing death.....Does this question even really NEED to be asked or discussed? REALLY???? If you still can't figure out my answer....then here it is...MICHEAL VICK SHOULD NEVER EVER BE ALLOWED TO OWN ANY KIND OF ANIMALS>>>>MUCH LESS A DOG>>>he should have thoguht about his kids when he tortured and killed those dogs.....pit bull, shepherd, poodle.....they all feel pain and are loving loyal pets...he abused that and it should NEVER be given back to him

You really must be kidding! It appears tome thatallowing Michael Vic adopt a dog would be like letting a Pedifile open and run a Day Care Center. BEYOND STUPID!


My thoughts exactly!!!


I think he knows he is talented and he is bored. He doesn't care and enjoys upsetting people. That is his motivation. His talent made things easy and therefore he is contemtuous of everyone else. Antisocial; he did this to annoy people because there are no other challenges in his life and his still not mature enough to deal with things productively. Obviously he shouldnt have a dog.


This man should never own another dog,I can NOT imagine havering those bad hands touch another animal,who does he think he is?he may have a lot of money,he may have a big fancy house,he may have his own clothing line,he may be a big superstar but he is an animal ABUSER,he should be treated as such for the rest of his life,just as a child abuser,rapiest,murderer.
