Vick says he hopes to own a dog as a pet someday

Published: Thu, December 16, 2010 @ 9:27 a.m.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Convicted dogfighting-ring operator Michael Vick hopes to own a dog again someday.

The Eagles quarterback tells TheGrio.com in a video interview that he genuinely cares for animals and one day hopes to have a dog as a household pet. Vick says it would a “big step” in his rehabilitation process.

Vick served 18 months in prison after being convicted in 2007. The federal judge overseeing the case also prohibited him from ever owning another dog.

He has become an advocate for the Humane Society of the United States and makes school appearances to talk to students about his past.

Vick told the site he wouldn’t take dog ownership lightly if he ever gets the opportunity.

That man should NEVER be allowed to have another dog EVER!

Part of his sentence was that he never own a dog again. Sorry Mike, you don't deserve to own a dog as you are incapable of empathy.

I heard this on GMA this morning, it's his daughters who would like a dog. Well, sorry to say, daddy messed that up for them. He should still be in prison, not on the NFL field.
I find it disturbing that guys like Vick and Big Ben the rapist still have jobs.
