Vick Dog Update

The Vick Dogs a decade after their liberation

HectorToday they are just dogs—dogs with graying muzzles and the aches and pains of incumbent old age—but seven years ago, when they were removed from Michael Vick's Bad Newz kennels they were anything but "just" dogs. Like you, we at Pit Bulletin Legal News have followed the stories of these dogs. What has happened to all of them? This article outlines how these dogs were freed from the dog-fighting operation and spared the normal fate of "evidence," and how they've fared since. It also includes interviews with adopters of Vick Dogs, the author of "Lost Dogs," and others involved in their liberation and rehabilitation.
