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?

Whether or not Michael Vick is remorseful about his previous barbaric behavior can be debated; no animal should be put in his care as a test. He messed that up with his previous actions.

No way should Vick be allowed to have another pet! He has proven without a doubt he has no respect for animals and there is not a pet loving bone in his body!!

People don't understand that he's just trying to redeem himself of what he's done, he's trying but people won't let him. So let him adopt the dog because when I watched his show, he said that his daughter had wanted the dog, he's just trying to make his children happy

One, I don't think it's the same as allowing a pedophile to adopt a child, not even close. Second, the person you are replying to gave an intelligent response to the situation and you can't handle that and can only retort with saying he must be the same kind of monster Vick is, or was. If you disagree, that's fine, but if you can't engage in debate without mudslinging/name calling you are probably the one in error.

These aniamal abuser does not deserve a second chance! This horrible person should not even be called a "pet parent"!! It makes my blood boil that he even has the nerve to make the statement..he wants another dog! Shame on you vick!!!!!!!!!

He absolutely should not be allowed to have a dog. Anyone who is cruel to animals like that is just sick. I don't feel he can be rehabilitated. There is something inherently wrong with him.

NO he should not be able to ever have any type of animal! Why would anyone think he is going to magically love the dog he would get now when he was so heartless and cruel to the dogs he tortured and killed?! Nobody in their right mind would give that man a dog or any animal. That would be like letting a pedophile or child abuser adopt a child! If I had it my way he would still be behind bars getting the same treatment he gave to those poor dogs!

First off he was NEVER a pet parent. He was and still is a total jerk that should NEVER NEVER be able to have another animal. The ones he left in the aftermath of the fighting ring are living proof he doesn't deserve to be forgiven. It would be a total slap in the face to all that have worked so hard to correct his wrongs.

You are a disgusting piece of shit! I hope someone does to you what you did to those poor dogs, I highly doubt you'll succeed in adopting ant animal, EVERYONE knows who you are and what you did, BTW, you're not famous for anything other than what you did to those poor animals, NO PERSON in their right mind would allow you to adopt any animal, unless of course they've been living under a rock or they are just as evil and disgusting as you are, I hope you rot in hell Michael vick, and you will, karma is a bitch, you'll see , lolololololol! Hahaha back at cha bitch!
