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.
