All but one of Vick's dogs are adoptable!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Despite the cruel things he's done, 48 of his dogs are clear for adoption and have placement potential.
How do you think this is going to pan out? Will people want them just because they're "famous"? I hope they go to very good homes to people who's hearts are in it, not their wallet or need for attention.

I hope that good people get them...But i am sure some will want just cause of who the dogs belonged to

That would be exactly my concern. And I am concerned that even with the best intentions in the world from their current carers, someone has a very good chance of slipping through the screening process and obtaining one or more of these dogs for further fighting ventures. Which would be sadder for me than if they'd died at Michael Vick's hands. Picture being rehabilitated and loved and cherished for the first time in your life, and trusting again, and then being returned to your torment? Unimaginable.

well all they have to do is move the dogs around to different places so that no one knows where the dogs go to.

heck, wish i could take one..

I would hope that whoever is adopting these dogs out will do an intense screening of the person/family and don't adopt out just cause its a "famous" dog. Sounds like the majority may wind up in law enforcement rather then families.

That would be great, though.

I read on Petfinder that Michael Vick took PETA's 8-hour class on "Empathy for Animals"

Is that a kind of 1-day rehab for dog killers.

OMG! Did he take notes to use in his next speech about how sorry he is and how he's learned to be compassionate?

What a freakin' jerk!

I read an article that said they will not go to 'typical family' homes as, although adoptable, they don't know how they will react in certain circumstances, so I really do hope they do go to law enforcement etc rather than people who are 'tough' enough to handle them

I read that too. Despite asking a hundred times to be removed from their list, I still get emails from PeTA. They had an article pertaining to this. At least he did it - and twice - it's a good example for the kids who idolise him if nothing else.
