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'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??

I live in California, but I don't understand why people are actually attending the games that the Eagles are playing knowing about Michael Vic (their big money maker). Wives, children should at least give the guys in their life that are attending the games a hard time, let alone let them attend.
