It’s hard to believe it was 5 years ago today that the “Vick Dogs” were rescued from the Virginia home of NFL quarterback Michael Vick.
Today, many of those dogs are happy, healthy, loving family dogs including Ginger (pictured above, all decked out to celebrate the 5th anniversary of her freedom). Let their story be a reminder that you can’t judge a dog (or a person, for that matter) by his past. It’s what he’s doing today that makes him who he really is.
One of my Facebook friends, a former bait dog name Blake, convinced his Hu-mama (that’s human mother, for those of you who don’t speak Doggie) to make a really incredible video, showcasing not only the Vick dogs, but many other wonderful family Pit Bulls. Her goal is “to clear up the misconception that Pit Bulls are vicious killers“, and I think you’ll agree when you watch it that these dogs are anything but. They’re sweet, affectionate family dogs, desiring to please and be loved.
