the power of a second chance

From msnbc.com:
"It’s a dog’s life. And for Leo it couldn’t be better.

Leo, rescued from heavy chains that confined him as one of the pit bulls in former NFL quarterback Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring, is a lover, not a fighter. He now happily frolics in a clown collar as he makes the rounds at the Camino Infusion Center, where he brings comfort to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Animal advocates are divided over whether fighting dogs can be trusted to have new lives as pets or working dogs. It’s the age-old story of second chances. By living his, Leo helps tear down entrenched stereotypes that pit bulls are irredeemable killers."
