Oklahoma City_A dog trainer in Oklahoma is now working with one of the dogs seized from a dog fighting operation run in part by former Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Michael Vick.
Molly Gibb of Near Arcadia says she's teaching the 3- to 4-year-old pit bull terrier named Alf to feel safe. Gibb says the dog doesn't have the type of scars to indicate he was used as a fighting dog. But she says he has the kind of fears typical of abused dogs such as fear of loud noises, sudden movements and people holding objects.
Gibb has had the dog since March and says he'll be ready for adoption at the end of the month.
Vick and three others were charged in 2007 and he pleaded guilty and is now serving time in federal prison.
