MV’s Pitbulls

So what is happening to Michael Vick’s pit bulls? I haven’t posted about Michael Vick here on Tip Tail… the whole story is sad and depressing. How anyone can fight dogs I just don’t understand. And to put them through such horrible ‘training,’ which is actually abuse, is beyond me. But then again I don’t even eat animals because I want no harm to come to them.

But now the good news about the dogs. PR Web has an Article (click here to read PRweb.com) which links to www.dogtime.com that has some great videos on their front page about how 10 of the dogs are being rehabilitated and put into foster homes to learn how to live in a home and with people.

I love pit bulls. I fostered one for a short time, and she convinced me, beyond a doubt, that they are wonderful, amazing dogs. Strong willed, for sure, and also loving and sweet. But anyway, if you want some good news about these dogs, click the links above to read the good things about rescue.

The dogs might not need any Lillian Vernon coupons to get back on track, but that’s okay, they have a lot of help along the way!

  1. That is great news!!! As the mom of a pit, I had wondered what happened to all those dogs. I am so relieved to hear they allowed the dogs to be evaluated before euthanization. Most of the dogs ended up at rescues I donate to. That makes me very happy.

  3. I am really glad to hear that some of the dogs were taken care of! That story had just kind of disappeared lately. I feel such disgust towards someone who would condone such treatment of any kind of animal! Shame on Michael Vick!

  8. Pit bulls are great animals! They have a bad reputation which has been brought on by irresponsible owners like Vick. They do tend to have a high prey chace characteristic, but when properly handled this is a non-issue. When it comes to their family, they are one of the most loyal dogs around! I hope these dogs get loving homes, and get to live out the rest of their lives chasing tennis balls and getting belly rubs!

  10. i had seen the episode as well for MV’s dogs i love the fact that there being taken care of. We need more people to help the breed as well and to attempt to give the public a different view to relize its the owners of the breed not the breed itself…
