A pit bull rehabilitated after being used as a top fighter in the dogfighting ring bankrolled by quarterback Michael Vick has died.
Officials at the Best Friends Animal Society say Lucas was euthanized Wednesday because of accumulating health problems.
Nearly two dozen of the Vick dogs were rehabilitated at Best Friends in Kanab, Utah. Lucas was one of two not allowed to be adopted because of his history as a fighter.
So, he spent most of his time lounging in the administrative offices at Best Friends, where he was widely known as one of the friendliest dogs at the sanctuary. Rest in peace, little buddy. (Julie Jacobson/The Associated Press)
