NFL star Michael Vick wants to own a dog again -- and five years after his conviction for illegal dog fighting, he can legally get one -- but the question is ... should he?

The Philadelphia Eagles QB was on Piers Morgan's show last night, and said he would like to get a dog for his kids.

After Vick served 19 months in federal prison ... he was banned from owning dogs for 3 years. That ban is about to expire, and Vick thinks having a dog could be "therapeutic" ... for his children. He told Piers, "I can't take that dream away from them. That's selfish on my behalf."

Lets to begin change this question...If Michael Vick his crime would have been sexual abuse involved little children, and now he is back, free, out of jail, no more probation, no more charges and everybody agrees, he has changed...would you allow him to adopt a child as he would like to make a difference and become a good parent for a child that lost his parents? you probably will all answer on the poll above heck NO, no way!!! now lets switch back to the original question and look at the answer...yes this is how it should be, a NO but But since its just a dog, why not, a dog is just a dog right? man has changed...PEOPLE DO NOT DO TO A DOG ( OR CAT ) WHAT YOU WOULD NOT DO TO YOUR HUMAN CHILDREN ... PERIOD
