Michael Vick confirms “Yeah, we have a dog”

After a conviction involving a dog-racing ring, temporarily ended his lucrative football career and left him behind bars, I would think Michael Vick wouldn’t want to go anywhere near a dog….but it appears as though the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback sees things differently.

“I understand the strong emotions by some people 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,” Vick said in a statement. “I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family.”

Vick was forced to comment on the families acquisition of a dog after a Twitter photo showed a box of dog treats sitting in the background.

Do you think Vick should be permitted to own a dog?
