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 way should any animal be put in the care of this lowlife beast. I don't believe he has changed at all, and I bet he still attends dog fights.

Hmmm, seems to me that letting Michael Vic adopt a dog would be like letting a Pedifile open and run a Day Care Center. What do you think?

Absolutely..well said!

Absolutely right. Thank you! We would think that is outrageous idea but there's actually people who are stupid enough to think giving this jerk a dog would be a good idea. He is the scum of the earth and I'm just sick about this whole idea. As long as I can still breathe there has to be a way to stop him from having a dog. I'm so disappointed that the judge in this case didn't think that a lifetime ban from owning another animal was appropriate considering his lack of remorse. Shame on him.

I'm terrified to learn that Michael vic has been trying to adopt a dog from a shelter. Please don't allow this to happen! He's a monster, and I have no doubt that he'll abuse innocent dogs again!
He may not physically abuse them again cause it would leave obvious signs of physical abuse. But instead he'll emotionally abuse them (for example:by putting them in a dark, cold basement or room only with little water/food to just keep them alive.
he's all about himself! he wants to adopt a dog in an attempt to create a better image for himself. He can't be trusted! Is there any way we can prevent him from owning a dog?? can we sign a petition?? another way to get people aware of what Michael vic is doing is going on youtube?

OK who's great idea was that? Have we forgotten what he did to those poor dogs? He should never be allowed to have any type of animals period!

The Hsus with that idiot Wayne Parcelle said he should have a dog. Iris a proven fact that the Hsus has agreed with every judgement to kill dogs and cats. He even killed 97 pit puppies from a raid. Apparently he can tell Judy by looking at a puppy it is vicious !! Hsus also bushed for the victory dogs to be killed instead of them going to best friends ! That is what Hsus stands for 1% of donations goes to shelters and I think most are kill shelters
