Michael Vick’s Pit Bulls to Star in Reality TV Show
A few days ago I passed along the news that some of Vick’s pit bulls had been rescued and were up for adoption. (I’m still interested in putting together an LBS fundraiser to snag one as the site’s official mascot, fyi). Anyway, pressing along, apparently these dogs are heading to Hollywood for the big time, as WSBTV reports:
Pit bulls that once belonged to Michael Vick will be featured in a reality show this summer about an animal sanctuary.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 22 of Vick’s dogs are now at Dogtown. The National Geographic Channel began a series about Dogtown, an animal sanctuary in Utah, in January.
In an episode airing this summer will focus on four of the toughest cases and the staff’s efforts to resocialize the aggressive pit bulls, according to the National Geographic Channel.
My goodness, people actually watch this stuff? Now, I wouldn’t mind watching a show to see Vick adjusting to life in prison — that would be tight. You know, footage of him getting Bubba’d in the shower with soap suds seeping down … never mind. But a reality show about the dogs trying to resocialize? That’s incredible. Who would’ve guessed that these dogs would be playing on Sundays on TV before their owner was!
