The season premiere of DogTown, a National Geographic Channel show that follows rescued dogs at the largest no-kill animal facility in the U.S. by the same name, will have an extra-special focus tonight: The pit bulls rescued from Atlanta Falcons quarterback and kennel/dog fight ring operator, Michael Vick. The episode focuses 4 of the 50 dogs that were rescued from Vick's compound, some of which have a great fear of humans, intense scarring, and physical illnesses due to abuse. The show follows the dogs' healing process and underscores the fact that pit bulls are affectionate when not in the hands of psychotic boneheads. [LA Times]
