Put this into the category of things that probably shouldn’t be all that shocking, but still does raise the hackles.
Back in October, Michael Vick announced that he was, once again, a dog owner. No stipulations on dog ownership had ever been put upon him by courts as a condition of his parole from prison and, for his part, Vick said that he wants his “children [to] establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect.”
While the announcement drew the expected negative reaction from animal rights groups, it hasn’t seemed to have fazed Vick, who this week was spotted publicly with his Belgian Malinois puppy — taking training classes at a New Jersey PetSmart.
Check out a picture of Vick with his new pet below.
