"Finally Free" Vick confirms family dog
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
