"Finally Free" Vick confirms family dog

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick made peace with himself Thursday.

The day after choosing to keep his private life private, Vick confirmed in a statement he owns a dog.

Vick released a statement expressing his thoughts through his  publicist.

“I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family’s decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals. I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family. This is an opportunity to break the cycle. To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change.”
- Michael Vick

Vick served 22 months in jail for operating a dogfighting ring.

It's chronicled in his autobiography "Finally Free" which ranks 45th in sales in the top 100 in Amazon's sports/outdoors category.
