What is happening to the Dogs he left behind???

You may be tired of hearing about Michael Vick, but here is an article about the dogs that were left after the last fights.

A group of Bay Area pit bull advocates is helping in the evaluation of dozens of pit bulls seized in connection with the federal dog-fighting case against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, officials said Wednesday.

Donna Reynolds, director of Bay Area Dog Lovers Responsible About Pit Bulls, or Bad Rap, said three certified animal behaviorists from her group will be part of the eight-person team that will look at the dogs beginning next week.

The evaluation team will be led by the science adviser for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The behaviorists will look at the dogs' response to humans and other dogs, how they react to outside stimuli and how comfortable they are with being handled.
