Michael Vick and family get a dog
After accidentally tweeting a photo with a box of dog treats in it, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has confirmed he has a dog.
In a public statement Vick said he understood the strong emotions by some people about his family’s decision to care for a pet and that he wanted to ensure that his children establish a loving bond to treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect.
Vick served 19 months in jail for owning and operating a dogfighting ring back in 2007.
The 32-year-old could not own a dog during his three-year probationary period following his release from prison.
