Michael Vick's New Pooch

The Most Dangerous Breed

For a Dog Killer

3/6/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0309_Michael-Vick_gettyMichael Vick's new dog is the WORST possible breed for a convicted dog killer ... and that's from the official organization that breeds the dog.

The American Belgian Malinois Club and Rescue tells TMZ, the group is very concerned that Vick is allowed to own ANY dog, but the Belgian Malinois is especially problematic.  The breed is highly trainable and they could easily become dangerous if they land in the wrong hands.

Vick, as you know, ended up training pit bulls to fight and kill.

Belgian Malinois -- which are frequently used by the military and police -- have the same fighting potential as pit bulls. 

Although the organization thinks dogs should be off-limits in the Vick household, they believe a more docile pooch -- like a lab -- would be way more appropriate.

But what's done is done ... and the ABMC wants to help Vick properly train the dog. The rep says the org. is willing to help Vick find a good trainer for the dog and educate him on Belgian Malinois so he can "learn and love the breed."

This sorry sob needs to be in prison, not getting millions to throw a ball and most definitely not owning a dog! WTH is wrong with our society.

Your poll question is incomplete

Vick deserves another chance at football and life, but surely it's reasonable that he lose his right to own a dog ever again. C'mon!

Letting Michael Vick own another dog is like letting a child molester babysit. Seriously bad idea!

Agreed. He should not own any dog or any other animal. His irresponsibility was not hoarding or lack of education. He should never be allowed access to animals.

Vick is a monster. He threw pets - lap dogs - in the ring as bait and laughed as the pits tore them to shreds. If you don't believe me - research it for yourself. It's a matter of public record.

Some folks behavior is so reprehensible that the punishment should last a lifetime. This person should never possess or be in contact with any dog, of any breed, for the rest of his life
