All the dogs that were driven across country are now with foster families. These dogs are all amazingly social, and are great with other family pets and children. They are so happy to be out of their misery and ready to be adopted by loving families. They have all passed obedience class, had shots, and been spayed and neutered. These sweet pit bulls have escaped abuse and almost certain death by humans, yet they still remain loving, happy and eager to please.

In Australia a lot of areas have B.S.L, If these guys don't prove em wrong then what will.

Thank you...I love knowing that there are wonderful people out there who love so freshly and understand that animals are just as capable of feelings as humans are. I have never owned a dog until recently, I grew up with cats, birds, reptiles, and gerbals. My mother is the most amazing person when it comes to animals and I happen to get her gene for loving them...and bless am I for having it. I never really understood the bond that people shared with their dogs until we recently brought home our 9 week (now 11 weeks) old Frenchie...I cannot even imagine our lives without him now. Thanks! ; Danielle Evans

I've been wanting to get a pitbull for some time now and have waited for some unknown reason (perhaps that reason has been revealed to me through this story). I would love to adopt one of Michael Vick's pitbulls and help prove that they can be just as normal as any other dog given the right enviornment, care and stable routine. I'm an Army officer living in the San Antonio Area and can be reached at terance.allen@us.army.mil. Thanks so much for this article!

I was saddened when this story first broke for I was sure that the dogs would automatically be destroyed. I so relieved to hear that the opposite is true! Thank you so much!

When I watch this vid I cry because it's so sweet! I a-dore the black boxer-pitt mix with the white pitt who's got the w-i-d-e smile. They're so goofy-looking! I actually think I'm becoming a "dog" person! (don't tell my cats!)

god bless all who helped and achieve this great great activity( though it probably wouldnt be called an activity) i am so relieved(as others) that these dogs were not destroyed. every animal should be given a second chance, if not a third, forth or fifth. well done

This is great - it should be sent to all tv stations. People need to see that pit bulls are no more dangerous than any other breed and can be just as grateful and loving.

I love what you guys are doing and hope to do the same one day! I have two of my own pit babies and I just hate how ignorant people jump at the sight of them since they are two of the sweetest dogs I've ever had! I really admire what you are doing and hope that all the Pit lovers around help to spread the message about these lovable dogs to the rest of the world!

One thing's certain. The savage beasts in this story weren't and aren't the dogs.

I hate what happened to them but I love their future. What great people to help these sad dogs and give them as awesome dog life. My blue pit was abused until I got my hands on him. Now his wounds have healed and he living a happy, healthy life in the country with me. Pitbulls Rock!

Thank you for giving these dogs a future. We have friends that have rescued Pit bulls and they are the most loving, loyal dogs. It's not the dogs that are bad, it's the irrasponsible people who unfortunatly get ahold of them!

Thank you so much for your wonderful work and amazing hearts. I am so happy these dogs are happy and will have a second chance at life. You are heros.

It makes me mad to hear people say that all pit bulls are dangerous! It all depends on the way they were raised! I have a pit named Scarface and he's the sweetest dog ever! You know the saying "Like a pit bull loves a cat" Well a cat is my dog's best friend! My Scarface is the most loyal animal I have ever owned! He was a graduation gift and I couldn't be happier to have him in my life! He's my pit bull son!!!!

Thank you so much for having this! I saw Dog Town on the National Geographic Channel the other night and have been thinking about these dogs ever since. I learned about another terrible aspect of dog fighting that night - concerning Georgia - a female that had all her teeth removed to protect the males as she was forcibly bred over and over. I hope the vet who was paid off by Michael Vick and his cronies to do the surgery get what's coming to him. They have all cast a dark shadow over the world of veterinary medicine. I was hoping to Georgia here as one of the success stories, but am so happy to see that these beautiful creatures have been delivered into the arms of people who will give them the love and respect they deserve. I hope Michael Vick is truly sorry for what he has done, although I doubt it. Remember, how a person treats an animal is usually an indication of how they treat their fellow humans.

I wish that I believed in god so that I could say something to you all with the same gravitas that a believer says, "God Bless You". I will NOT think of the horror that these gentle friends have endured. Thanks to you, they will enjoy the happiness that they deserve for the rest of their lives.

I'm happy that the dogs are getting a fresh start on life. Pitbulls have been so misunderstood, and have recieved a bad reputation. I hope Michael Vick is sorry for what he is done. I'm pretty sure he is. If he truly is sorry, it would be nice to see him speak out against animal cruelty. Afterall many people have made mistakes. We once lived in a prejudice nation and where slavery and ownership of a human being was legal. If we can move from that to a more unified society, then anything is possible. I feel that everyone deserved forgiveness at some point. What it God didn't forgive us for the things we have done wrong? I just wish the dog success and a speedy recovery!

Keep up the good work! I've seen many good-natured pitbulls at various dog parks, even adult non-neutered males. Unfortunately, I've seen the other types that were intentionally made to be mean through abuse. But I've also seen one of these recover and become a well-socialized, playful dog at the off-leash park (once I showed the owner how to properly and gently use a Woodhouse collar). Thank you for all the work you do, and I think that you ought to make a short documentary, and the NFL ought to air it no charge during halftime at the Superbowl.

Im glad to know that these puppies are safe now and in a loving family!!!

I've been telling people for I don't know how long that not all pit bulls are bad and FINALLY something like this happens so people can see that I was right. I'm so happy that these people could come in and rescue these dogs. They're such little sweeties. If only my dog was as friendly towards other dogs as they are I could've adopted one.

i wish there were more people like you who took time out to do what you have done and are doing so well.we have a pitbull 4yrs old we live in greece near athens and the reputation is the same here people are frightened wary judgemental the list goes on.im constantly defending our dog its very sad as we have so many street dogs here they do not have dog shelters like the u.s or the u.k.

Having German Shepherds I have never judged a dog by its breed but did buy into the thinking that the Vick dogs could not be rehabed. THANK YOU so much, I have never been so happy to be wrong. And I am so grateful that these dogs will not have gone on to the beyond believing that all humans are evil and cruel.

INCREDIBLE. May GOD BLESS you all who work with these and other PB. The mass media has placed such a negative view on these poor dogs, your work has certainly changed the view. Thank you for doing what you do.

I just loved reading all the heart warming stories..I too. am a dog owner, but of German Shepards....it's not just the breed of pit-bulls, that can be very aggressive, any breed can, it's all in the way they are trained and esp. treated..I have been around dogs all my life, and being canadian and hearing what happened to these dogs, I just can't understand how anybody would think this man is sorry now??? He is one sick ....., I believe in an eye for an eye, this man should have everything he did to these dogs to him...I did not know at the time, that he has kids of his own and apparently used his own family pets! Do you want to see this man play football again? I actually think he is taking his life into his hands even thinking of going back on that field...whoever hires him, is just going to commint finincial suicide! I am really surprised Ophay hasn't gotten involved in this , her being an animal lover, she has the power to do it...I own, 2 german shepards, Sophie, Thunder, and one english bulldog, cleo, and one rescue, molly , the pup! I love all my dogs better than humans! I , myself help the animal assistance here in my hometown....I rise my hat to you all for the love and compassion you have shown these dogs..

Thank you so much for the followup. Made me teary and happy at the same time. God bless these ambassadors of the breed and letting us find a little bit of good in their tragic situation before rescue. I hope America realizes that it's not the breed, it's the owners.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL and THOSE BEAUTIFUL DOGS.
Apr 15, 2009 lisaamcm
Those are beautiful dogs, I am glad they get a happy ending to their stories and Vick gets prison time. I have Jack, he's a big mix who looks similar to the white one with the brown eye spot. He is big and goofy and sweet, loves to play or just to sit with you. These dogs love their humans! and i love them, they are wonderful pets.

i too own a dog breed considered to be a dangerous breed (dobermans). unfortunately pitt's are banned form ontario (an effort to have the ban lifted is in place). if only the government could see the pit bull the way you do!!! good luck to all the pitts in the world who have ben tourtured like the poor souls. and thank you for the efforts to help people see that this breed is just a good if not better then we all believe them to be!!!! bless you for your efforts and congrats that they pay off!!!!! keep up the awesome work!!!!!!

I cannot express how big of a smile this brought to my face. I just love seeing dogs smile and to see these dogs who have been hurt so badly smile so brightly just warms my heart. You all are such wonderful people.

Oh that made me cry! Thanks you for rescuing these beautiful dogs! Some of the goofiest, sweetest, friendliest and most affectionate dogs I have ever met have been pit bulls! And nothing beats that big, beautiful pitty smile!!!
