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?

that would be like putting a child molester in the playground of a school yard and saying he is healed now... I DONT THINK SO

Vick should NEVER BE WITHIN 50 FEET OF AN ANIMAL!! HE HAS AN EVIL STREAK THAT HAS THE TENDENCY TO HARM & KILL INNOCENT ANIMALS! HE NEEDS A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE! ANIMAL KILLER!!!!!!!

Monique

NEVER!!!!!!! He should STILL be in jail

Linda

He hasn't changed. Anyone that could do all he's done wont change. Why would he want to? He likes who he is-arrogant, selfish, and aggressive. Please don't allow him the honor of owning or guardianship over any precious life.

Johnny

Kill Vick

maureen

NO!!! he should not be allowed to even breed humans! HE IS A ANIMAL ABUSER & KILLER! doesn't matter he went to jaiL; or paid fines . he LOVED IT WHEN HE WAS MAKING MONEY! .he should never be allowed to be near animals or children!!

I wouldn't let this murderer have a PET ROCK let alone a live animal. NO WAY. It should be a stipulation of his probation that he is not allowed to have any pets. Or children for that matter. He should be grateful he is back playing pro sports (so wrong!) making millions of dollars and leave it alone.

OH HELL NO!!!!! He does not deserve to have the love of a dog. If you read what he did to those poor, INNOCENT dogs, then everyone would agree that he should never ever be able to own an other animal ever! He is the worst kind of human being.

Vicki

He was only banned from owning for 3 years and that is about to expire. It should have been a lifetime!!

Allowing micheal Vick to adopt a dog is like allowing a convicted child molester adopt a child. Nothing good can come from it and he does not deserve the loving from a dog. Give him a pet cactus that way there is no possible way he can kill it.
