I would very much like to watch this, but cable where I live has gotten rather "creative" with their program packaging and has just dropped the channel from my package. I'd love to hear feedback on it.

Default M. Vick got off tooo easy:

After watching what he did and paid to have done to his dogs is evil and more like a devil person than human. I am so angry I could of stood in front of him with a gun, shot him and felt nothing.

He knew he was funding this, tortureing the dogs so badly he cannot have or possess a human brain. I do not care where or how he was brought up, there is NO excuse for a well paid man to do this. Is money the route to all evil as said in the Bible? Yes, it sure was with M. Vick. He just could not make enough, he had to torture, starve, beat, kill dogs to make a business work, to make him more money.

He would never be accepted into my world with is so called apology, he is fake, non human and should get the same he gave to those poor dogs. How horrible. I never paid alot of attention to this care before, more is on Wed at 9 pm, I have seen enough of this NUT CASE.

Thank GOD some of the dogs got placed and made it in this world of love and peace for dogs. They lived in cages so long they feared people rather than bite them. Thanks for Vick for this crap. This is truly outrageous behavior for any human being to do with money he made and hopefully his next trial he is serving the rest of his life.

That was interesting of all dogs, 2 got pu to sleep ONE cause of aggression, and one cause of health issues. A breeding machine, she was basically tits and spine..

One was a therapy dog and others had gone out to other homes with children and other animals. They have showed on little to none dog aggression.

I am not that worried about the children, I am not sure however about other dogs unless it is opposite gender.

The rescue group that took them in made it sound SO simple to take a fighting dog and make them work with other dogs which it really isnt. It needs to be taken with a bit more caution.

However Im glad to see the good side of it for once..

I could of recorded it, but was it worth it, NO!!! He is a true Jerk, stupid and money hungry more than I knew. Firing the man who helped find the evidence and has no job. The sheriff knew what was going on and covering up, the man went to FBI for help, got it and WOW, blew it wide open.

What a set of kennels, junk he had to work the dogs to death to condition. Dogs buried all over the place. Should alot of fighting made me ill to my stomach. Tore flesh off the dogs, they looked grouse. How awful those dogs fight when taught. I mean I have seen dog fights, but they were totally taught to fight to kill, showed one black ones tongue coming in and out gasping for air while the other dog had it by the throat.

They knew right where to brab first at juglar vein and hold on. Powerful dogs all muscle, but loved people. Starved for affection and attention and love.

Next program is Wed. at nine pm.

I saw it and I actually enjoyed it!

It's cleared up alot of misconceptions....Even some of mine. I've always loved pitties and known the kind, eager to please, gentle disposition they have when they are raised and treated properly. But I would never have guessed that dogs used for fighting would be so easy to rehabilitate.

That actually makes me wonder what the dynamics of training fighting dogs are, what are they doing to those dogs that allowed the Michael Vick dogs to still be friendly with other dogs? What's different?

I mean, here we have dogs that aren't trained to fight, have never been fought, yet they lunge out to viciously attack other dogs for no reason other than obviously not having been socialized correctly and these dogs are the ones with the rep of being hard to retrain.

What's up with that....It has my interest sparked now. I'd love nothing more than to do a study of some type on this....Get rescued pitties that would normally be put to sleep and not even given a chance and work with them. Maybe the aggression is triggered from the pit, maybe it's an environmental cue to the behavior. Maybe once out of that environment, they are totally different dogs.

oooh all the misconceptions and the ignorance here....This show has really revealed alot about dog fighting dogs I think.

sugardog to be honest its not common that dogs once used in fight work with other dogs again. I think it depends on what genetic background you have for that dog. I got very surprised. It looks like US might have certain lines that are more aggressive than others. Did you see the fight where the two dogs were doing the pose but they weren't really aggressive cause one gave up emidately so they pinched the black one between his back leg and tummy to get him going? the other one gave up directly again, the black one stoppe and they kinda pushed them to it. My amstaff/pit (not fully sure what part she was the most tey said pure amstaff) she had fighting champions on both sides (she was smuggle import from jugoslavia I got her from some guys who couldn;t handle her no more) and she had it in her blood, when she was about 6 months of age, no certain encouragement and BAM. So these dogs were very low in aggression level so again I think that goes from dog to dog, they have also shown on animal planet when they have rescued other fighting pits and they do NOT funcion with other dogs.
