Pit Bull Leo, rescued from NFL quarterback Michael Vicks dogfighting ring, now brings happiness to a cancer ward and probationary center.

Despite his training as a killer, Leo is a sweetheart as he visits his friends on the ward.

He is wonderful, and all the patients love Leo, said Paula Reed, the facilitys oncology director. They really love his eyes and gentleness.

I remember crying over the poor dogs who were seized from Vick’s property with a terrible past and little hope for a future after the story broke. Hearing about their rehabilitation makes my heart feel full. Thank you to all the rescuers who gave these unfortunate souls a second chance.
