'Most beautiful' dog used to fight for Michael Vick8/29/2012
In a real-life fairy tale complete with anthropomorphized, adorable animal characters, canine underdog Jonny Justice has snagged the prestigious Gund Top Dog prize in the stuffed-animal-maker’s Facebook competition. The pup will be immortalized as a limited edition plush toy; yeah, one of those super-soft ones. Jonny Justice hasn’t always led a charmed life; this Staffordshire bull terrier’s checkered past includes battling in ex-quarterback Michael Vick’s infamous dogfight ring. But the rescued, rehabilitated dog trounced more than 1,300 adorable canines in the "Most Beautiful Dog" category. Too bad this miracle pooch can’t learn to speak – his acceptance speech would surely be a tearjerker. [Source]
