"I would love to get another dog in the future," Vick said. "I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process. I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love and my passion for animals; I think it would be outstanding."
Vick spent 18 months in prison and two months of home confinement after being convicted of running a dogfighting operation. He also served a two-game suspension when he returned to the NFL in 2009.
"If I ever have the opportunity again I will never take it for granted. I miss having a dog right now," Vick explained. "I wish I could. My daughters miss having one, and that's the hardest thing; telling them that we can't have one because of my actions."
Vick has become a star on the Eagles this season, leading them to their current 9-4 record. He has thrown 17 touchdown passes and only four interceptions.
He currently leads the league in Pro-Bowl voting. Scroll down to watch the interview.
