It‚Äôs the end of an era both for Michael Vick and one of his ex-top canines. Vick‚Äôs former pooch, Lucas was humanely euthanized on Wednesday at the Best Friend Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. The 13-year old dog was suffering from accumulating health problems.
Lucas was rescued from the dogfighting ring circuit in 2007, after that time he was rehabilitated with nearly two-dozen dogs that also spent time in the ring. Despite his new life, Lucas wasn‚Äôt eligible for adoption because of his fighting history ‚ÄĒ he was Vick‚Äôs grand champion. Instead Lucas was a lifetime care dog at the animal sanctuary. But the CEO for Best Friends Gregory Castle said it was, ‚Äúa blessing in every way to be around him‚Ä¶ ”
Guess that‚Äôs why they call them man‚Äôs best friend.
