Michael Vick's former dog Lucas, who was rescued from the NFL player's despicable dog fighting organization, was humanely euthanized because of his declining health and subsequent problems.
Lucas was one of Vick's most vicious dogs, and therefore was ruled by a judge that the pit bull could never be adopted.
However, the people who took care of Lucas at the Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah claim Lucas was the friendliest and most lovable dog there.
Here's what the CEO of the society said about Lucas:
"[It] a blessing in every way to be around him and to witness the wonderful effects on everyone he met."
Lucas was 13 years old.
RIP big guy! We miss ya even though we hardly knew ye!
