where are they now

meet hector: a highly-social, non-aggressive pitbull who spends his days visiting nursing homes, hospitals and schools as a licensed therapy dog.

hector is so good at his job, he was recently honored with a prestigious service award.

he is also one of 47 dogs saved after they were seized from michael vick's home in 2007.

the question has been asked before: can seized pitbulls be rehabilitated? the answer is a resounding yes - even though peta and the HSUS took the position that vick's pit bulls were beyond rehabilitation.

check out the national pit bull rescue center for more info on demonized dogs and the efforts to end their abuse.
