The government has asked animal behavior experts to examine the 50 dogs seized from Michael Vick's property to determine whether they are adoptable or if they should be euthanized.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will lead a team that will assess the dogs confiscated in late April in rural Surry County.
The organization will recommend to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S.Attorney's office what should happen to the dogs. Vick pleaded guilty Monday to a dogfighting conspiracy charge.
