Vick's Dogs May Get to Live

48 of 49 dogs appear to have some chance for placement based on behavior testing.

An examination of 49 dogs seized in the Michael Vick dogfighting case has found that only one canine is an immediate candidate for euthanasia.

Working under contract with the Department of Agriculture, a team of veterinarians assembled by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals conducted "individualized behavior testing" last month to gauge each dog's behavior toward other animals and humans.

That's interesting. I hope they know what they are doing. It's great the dogs may live, but they have to be very careful that one isn't a ticking time bomb.
