    If anyone should be prominently placed on a Do Not Adopt list it's this creep. I thought it interesting that in the interview I saw he wouldn't tell what breed of dog they have. Knowing his history with dogs, it's beyond me why anyone would allow him to adopt a pet.

    To quote a very popular T-shirt around here:

    I read somewhere that he got the dog from a family member. I don't believe that any shelter, rescue, or breeder would ever have let him adopt/buy one of their animals. It would be my hope that morals would override a monetary profit.

    He said it was not a pit bull, and that his kids wanted a dog...I imagine the local AC will be keeping a pretty close eye on him.

    The world is watching him, Donna, as are law enforcement people. He'd be an idiot to lie.

    Abuse another dog and loss all that money again?? Something tells me that dog is going to be pretty well taken care of! God forbid he losses his million dollar contract again!

    It's ONE dog. Why should his kids not have a pet because their dad had a dog-fighting ring? That's pretty much the point he made.

    I guess I could say I "see" his point. Growing up without any sort of pet must suck, I wouldn't know, I always had pets. I guess my issue is, did he care about what his kids were seeing when he HAD the dog-fighting ring? Maybe he hid it well, but it doesn't matter. I'm sure they SAW him go to jail for killing dogs, right? Key word here is killing, and this is why he shouldn't have another one, regardless of what his kids want. I'm sorry, I'm not a believer in "old habits die hard". I am with some things, but abuse ain't one of them.

    I am always up for givin' someone a second chance, but there's just some people who have had the opportunity to change too many times as it is. Something tells me if he hadn't gotten busted he would not have stopped the dog-fighting ring, and I think that disgusts me the most.
