Ibelieve the show will be good for people to realize not all pit bulls are bad dogs it is usually the people who are bad not yhe dogs. I can't believe after outlawing dogfights a century ago people still do this cruel and inhumane thing personal I think people who fight dogs ought to be strung up.

It is truly unreal that people treat dogs like this, maybe this show will make more people aware of this horror.

What Vick did was wrong and hurtful. I'm glad that some of the dogs can be rehabed and find families that can give them the love they deserve.
