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?

Why / how is that legal? Is there a pitition we can sign or something? Seriously, he should never be allowed to have another animal. Ever.
Privilege lost a-hole

Letting Michael Vick adopt a dog would be like letting child molesters adopt children!!!!!!!!
No this scumbag should not have the honor of owning a animal!

This pathetic excuse for a human being is a disgrace to the community and requires urgent physicist treatment. Life-time ban from owing any animal. Spent justfied jail time at tax-payers expence. The more I hear of people like him the better I like my Dogs.

I think he should have a pet. Although he abused and defiled them, he has made every effort with ASPCA and PETA along with many other organizations to speak against cruelty towards animals. Even the Eagles have to pay animal rights organizations to let him play on the team. In an effort to show that he is taking a step in the right direction he needs to have a pet. I think its ignorant to say its like letting a pedophile run a day care. Animals and children are not the same. Having an obsession with sexually assaulting children is a sickness and in most cases cannot be fixed. Abusing an animal and understanding the consequences and results of your actions is something that can be repaired. He has apologized and is trying to move forward. Bet you'd let a pedophile pet your dog before you let them take your kid to the park. People make mistakes... he's human. If you did it you would want someone to forgive you. Im sure there's dirt in your closet you'd be scared to let any one know and we're pointing a finger at someone who is n different. Get over it... move on.

I cannot believe that the NFL even allowed this cretin to be reinstated to make millions more on his contract --and how much money does this asshole need that has to get into the dog fighting scene? He is a prehistoric creature and it is indicative of what lengths we will go to be entertained!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are we on the path of the Roman Empire or what????????????????

Vick electrocuted dogs in his swimming pool and seemed to relish beating dogs to death. He is an animal abuser. The court should have ordered him to stay away from all animals; I am very worried about that poor puppy.

Michael Vick is a sociopath.He hung and electocuted dogs and cheered when they were killing each other.They were left with no vet treatment.He is a fake phoney liar and if he did not get caught he would still be doing it today.He is a very sick man.How anyone would allow a child to look up to someone like this baffels the mind.It is sad a disgusting the way these animals were murdered and he found enjoyment in throwing his own domestic pets to the pit bulls to watch them be shreaded to death.He is a dangerous person and is unfit to be around animals of for that matter people.I wish people would just stop saying a bit of dog fighting no hanging,shooting and electocuting dogs.

He has no compassion whatsoever for any animals that he has ever seen. Obviously less than two years was not enough. He hasn't proven that he cares for these precious animals and he has had no remorse for their brutalizations and deaths. He should be ashamed of even suggesting that there might be a possibility of him adopting another pet. He doesn't deserve the pet and the pet doesn't deserve the abuse.

Sorry to say I don't think he deserves a new beginning and to be a dog owner. It's bad enough that he really got a slap on the hands and a fine... Big deal! Call me crazy but he and these people who wage dogfights forlornly should be locked up for felonies and not a misdemeanor. I work in Healthcare and see too many "slap on the wrists" and they do the same thing be it violence etc and they are all sorry and yet see them time and time again. If I have to be responsible ... Then they should. I have no respect for him ...
