Federal authorities have filed a motion suggesting that a Valparasio law professor to become the guardian-special master to oversee the outcome of dozens of dogs seized from Michael Vick’s home.
According to the motion filed in federal court on Monday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Richmond also asked that each of the 48 pit bulls be spayed, neutered and have microchips implanted.
Animal law expert Rebecca Huss has been requested to oversee the disposition and possible placement of the dogs.
If Huss is appointed, she would travel to Virginia to evaluate the dogs and make recommendations on their future. The court would then carry out her recommendations. There is no deadline for the process.
A spokesman for the Valparaiso University School of Law said: “her goal is, and the court’s goal is, to find the best possible future for the dogs and the humans and other animals with which those dogs would come in contact.”
