Michael Vick made a bizarre choice when he picked out his new puppy ... 'cause the convicted dog fighter's new poochie is one of the TOUGHEST breeds around ... one that's used by the Navy SEALS.

Vick was spotted out at a dog training class at a PetSmart in New Jersey recently ... where he's been working with his new pet ... a Belgian Malinois.

FYI -- the Belgian Malinois have a great reputation as a military working dog ... and according to reports, the Navy SEALS who killed Bin Laden had a BM with them at the time of the raid.

According to CrossingBroad.com, the dog is a female named "Angel."

It's been 4 years since Vick was released from prison for running a brutal dog fighting ring in Atlanta ... in which several animals were killed.

So, we gotta ask ...

Awesome     

My problem is... He didn't get a Chihuahua or poodle, he got another fighting type dog. Guess we will have to wait and see if he's got good or bad intentions for this dog. I'm hoping good for the sake of the dog.

I'm sorry but he used dogs for fighting for a very long time before he got caught. No, he should be able to own any dog! My opinion so y'all can shut up!

With the money Vick has, it would be wiser for him to have a private trainer come into his home to train him and his family with the dog. Seems like he's trying to shove the whole thing in our faces.

People are so dumb, saying they should take away his kids. You dont think going to jail, losing endorsements, and getting looked down on isnt enough? you really think a guy with kids who clearly turned his life around is still gunna do dog fighting?
You guys are ridiculous and racist

For all of you who think that those of us who do not feel as though this piece of s*** should be forgiven and allowed to have another dog are putting animal lives above those of us humans, read this, it shows that most people who abuse and kill animals become violent against humans. Most serial killers have a history of animal abuse, so maybe we feel that by having stiffer laws against animal abuse it may save the lives of humans in the future.

I'm confused how everyone keeps saying he made a mistake and deserves a second chance. He killed over 50 dogs. Thats not a mistake, he knew what he was doing. He should never be able to own a animal again. He would still be doing the same thing if he wouldn't of been caught.

If you electrocuted and shot your kids, would you get another chance to adopt a new one? Forgiveness yes, another chance? NO.

I know Americans are not exactly the smartest people on the planet, but it boggles the mind why the judge would not impose a lifetime ban on Virk owning pets of any kind. You are born with the right. You should lose that right when you are found guilty of hurting an animal, or betting on hurting an animal.
