Former Vick dogs make their debut

Finally! The gag order has been lifted and the rescue groups can start talking about the pit bulls confiscated from Michael Vick's home. Ten of those dogs went to BadRap, and you can see some awesome pictures of them here: http://www.badrap.org/rescue/vick/

Their blog has been updated as well: http://badrap-blog.blogspot.com/2008/01/jan-25-last-defendant-sentenced.html#links

Best Friends has not shown footage of the dogs yet but will on Monday. However, you can read their updates here: http://news.bestfriends.org/index.cfm?page=news&fps=1&mode=entry&entry=AD2802EC-19B9-B9D5-9D9C19F7DD13ACF1

Shame on PETA and shame on HSUS for considering these dogs "ticking-time bombs" and only worthy of death. They aren't magical dogs nor are they extraordinarily different. They have their own personalities, own likes and dislikes, and deserve to be judged by their behavior and personality, not by their breed.

What a great day for pit bulls everywhere!

*happy dance* Score a victory for the good guys on this one. I was so happy when I heard those dogs were being adopted out instead of just put down. The badrap site makes me want to tear up here at the office. Bless those dogs, and bless the people helping them out.

Thank you for posting this - the videos at BadRap have me literally crying for joy!

Off to the supermarket now to buy more tissues.

I am so happy for these dogs. However, I have to admit that I'm still not happy with Best Friends' involvement with this whole thing. Based on their recent (and very public) outcry against pit bulls, it seems that they have misguided intentions in their involvement with the Vick dogs (read: Money).

It really is a great day for pit bulls. I'm so glad there was a happy ending (er, beginning) for these dogs. They deserve it!
