A Happy Ending for Michael Vick's Dogs
Former NFL Star Michael Vick Is Serving 23 Months in Prison for Running An Illegal—and Incredibly Cruel—Dog-Fighting Operation. But 47 of the Pit Bulls Vick Bred for Killing Have Been Granted Freedom, and Many Are Thriving
One thriving beneficiary of the judge's compassionate decision is 2-year-old Hector, visibly scarred from his days at the dog-fighting operation but today basking in the affection he gets at Bad Rap, a pit-bull rescue organization in Oakland, Calif., one of eight groups chosen by Huss to rehab the former fighters. At his weekly training sessions, Hector learns the basic obedience and social skills denied him by Vick. "It's like a light has been switched on," says Donna Reynolds, who founded the group with her husband, Tim Racer, in 1999. "It's a complete turn-around." Hector has already been approved for adoption, though Judge Hudson has mandated a six-month waiting period before the dogs permanently move in with families. In the meantime Hector is free to romp and play. Says Racer: "If Michael Vick could see what's happening here, I'd hope he'd find it in his heart to say, 'Wow, look what they've done with my dogs!'"
