Michael Vick Reveals Ownership of Companion Dog

Convicted of animal cruelty in 2007, the quarterback says his family now has a dog but asserts his commitment to animal welfare.

Due to speculation after posting a photo to Twitter with a box of dog treats visible in his home, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick—who was convicted of felony dog-fighting charges in 2007—told gossip outlet TMZ last week that his family does indeed have a companion dog now. “I understand the strong emotions … about our family’s decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals … Our pet is well cared for and loved … This is an opportunity to break the cycle … I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change.” Vick previously teamed up with The Humane Society of the United States for a campaign aimed at raising awareness of animal cruelty.
