Vick's dogs getting second chance.
Two months ago, Shadow was one uncooperative pit bull. He had no interest in
toys placed in his kennel and would firmly anchor his paws in the middle of
walks, refusing to continue .
The dog wasn't being stubborn. He was frightened, adjusting to getting
lavished with affection and attention after having survived the bloodthirsty
world of dog fighting. Shadow and 21 other pit bulls are living at a southern
Utah animal sanctuary where handlers hope to undo the mental damage done at
Michael Vick's Bad Newz Kennels .
PETA feels such limited contact is wrong. Best
Friends maintains it's better than the alternative.
