I thought this was a nice ending to a sordid saga.

Great article. Thanks for posting it flave. And I'm really sorry for the two dogs that didn't make it.

Once again, I hope you rot in hell Vick.

Agree... But I wish I wasn't a member of the "its only a matter of time" population when viewing the potential danger that ex-fighting dogs pose. I've heard too many stories to be optimistic that all these dogs will live full lives without ever having snapped.

That worries me too. I hope these dogs make it, but you never know if something can set them off.

In reading the article, this is what struck me as well. One of his dogs is taking orders from a 2 year old? I have a 2 year old, and I can guarantee you I would not expose her to the risk. I hope the dogs do have a fulfilling "rebirth" in our predominantly humane society, but I hope no one is injured in the process.

I think the key is to keep a close eye on them pretty much at all times, and not leave them alone with other dogs or children. But it's true that accidents can happen..all you can do is hope for the best.

Just don't let them be around other dogs or small children. Being a single, younger guy, I'd definately take one of these in if I didn't already have a dog. Great story that these animals are being given a chance.

This is about the only positive thing I can take from the whole Vick dog story and I'm glad to hear it. Honestly I'll never get over this story at all knowing all the details and I cross my fingers that Michael Vick never steps on an nfl field again. I agree in most situations a second chance is warranted. But not here.
