Vick Wants A Dog
Star NFL quarterback Michael Vick, who made headlines three years ago when he was convicted of dogfighting, says he would love to get a dog sometime in the future. As part of his sentence, Vick was banned from owning a dog. But now the current Eagles and former Falcons quarterback tells a website called “theGrio” that dog ownership would be a big step in his rehabilitation process. Having a pet in his household would, he says, show people he genuinely cares for animals. Wayne Pacello, president of the Humane Society of the U.S., says he has been around Vick a lot and feels confident Vick would be a good pet owner.
