"His two girls really want one. I think it would be okay. It would be the most scrutinized dog in the world.Vick became involved in dog fighting at the age of 7. He did not know any better." said Pacelle. "I am concerned about more than one dog. Michael Vick helps us reach urban youth. Yesterday, Michael and I talked to 500 kids at Gratz High School. The kids listen to him."
Vick has also filmed a new public service announcement urging the public to phone in tips about dog fighting by calling 800-TIP-HSUS
He continued, "Vick tells the kids 'I made a mistake'. He has been doing this for three years up and down the East Coast.
