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."

I find it funny that a black man can make a mistake pay for his crime and he is forever judged by that.

No story here, time has been served, no crime for Mr. Vick to own a dog. The public just doesn't get to decide.

he should be able to get a dog. set aside the issue it was a dog. people care more about animals and not the unjust issue that go on in america.. we have more homeless people out here in NC and every 30 mins there is a petsmart adopt a dog commercials. I love dogs and think it was wrong as well but fact of the matter is it wasn't a human

It's a dog, not a baby. We care more for anminals then we do for human beings. That's why most people don't need kids. I say mind your own business.

Michael Vick should never own a dog. Rehabilitation in prison is a joke. I worked for the the probation system and believe me, there are a lot of previous offenders in prison. Would you leave your young child with a convicted child molester? They have been rehabilitated and served their time, right. What is wrong with Michael Vick is innate and he should never be allowed to own a dog. Cruelty to animals is almost always a prerequisite of cruelty to people. It should be a violation of the terms of his parole and for an Employee of Petsmart to stand next to a dog killer and torturer is unacceptable.

Since I have been affiliated with the judicial system for over 30 years, I have seen murderers, child molesters, criminals in general who have never been rehabilitated and never will. What is inside Michael Vick is "pure evil" and anyone that believes what he did is okay, they have the same mindset, EVIL. Some of the comments I have read show how illiterate some people are. They cannot spell and they have to use foul language to get their point across. One of Michael Vick's comments was "my new dog ain't no bitch." Very intelligent comment. Once his NFL career is over, guess how he will make money.

What's the big f-ing deal?! Unless you're a vegan, you participate in the inhumane destruction of innocent animals every single day. The only difference is that you didn't pet that cow that was slaughtered to make that hamburger you're eating while reading this.

Does anyone know what happened to an earlier post that was done in all caps condemning the press for putting forth false information about the dog Vick acquired? It sounded like Vick had written it himself, a strange comment to say the least......It seems to have disappeared....interesting.......
