This totally brought tears to my eyes. I am so grateful that Lucas got to know love and happiness before he passed. Thank you to the family that adopted him and showed him love. What you gave him is a precious gift. You are angels!
Dear Michael Vick: Your Champion is Dead,
Mike, just thought you’d like to know that on June 19th of this year, your Grand Champion Fighting Dog, Lucas, finally succumbed to the disease he was infected with during his time fighting for you. You should be happy to know that his new caregivers and family did all they could to save him, but his suffering was too much so in the most humane, painless way, they granted him his final peace. They think he was about 13 at the time, but I guess you would know better than anyone.
You should also be pleased to hear that despite your efforts to turn this beautiful dog into a monster, he was actually found to be the most loving of all the dogs rescued and rehabilitated from Bad Newz Kennels, thus proving that even those deemed the worst in our society, can still…

I am so moved by this story of Lucas. I am willing to bet that if the Scum Bag himself had walked up to Lucas he would not have attacked him because animals are not evil or vengeful. I am a Pit lover, I have a beautiful wonderful girl and I am fearful of her getting out of the house and some piece of shit “Yes you VIC” stealing her for the ring. I do not think that ANYONE has ever gotten a proper sentence for hurting animals. The human race should be ashamed that we let this garbage not only hurt these innocent animals but after a slap on his rich little hand he gets to be a football player and a hero to our children and the world, i don’t get it.
I agree! I love pit bulls. All dogs actually. While I don’t have a pit bull myself, I know that they are one of the sweetest and most loyal of dogs. The things that Vick inflicted on these beautiful creatures is so completely horrific that there are not many words I can think of that would coherently describe what I feel about him and his actions. His punishment was NOT adequate and no where near what he and his cohorts deserved. Many of his victims paid with their lives. While I am not saying he needs to die, I do believe that a way more severe punishment should have been inflicted upon him. Use him as an example of what happens to those that participate in dog fighting and in animal abuse in general. Such a shame. But I am grateful that many of the dogs he owned were rehabilitated and re-homed. Shows the forgiving and loving nature that these dogs possess. Lucas was one of the lucky ones. He was and always will be loved. Rest in Peace sweet boy. You deserve it.
July 12,2013 – I should clarify, Lucas was NOT allowed to be adopted by the public. The judge in this case thought that it would be better for him to stay with Best Friends for the rest of his days. By family, I mean those that took care of him at the shelter and were his family there. In a sense, the adopted him and became his family. Sorry for the rambling, just wanted to clarify!
