Sweet Georgia Brown gave me a kiss today.
Not just another starlet dragged in for another Television Critics Asssociation session, Georgia's a pit bull, one of 22 fighting dogs rescued from Bad Newz Kennels, on property owned by disgraced Atlanta Falcolns Quaterback Michael Vick.
She and her pals are being rehabilitated at Dogtown, part of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Southern Utah, and focus of National Geographic Channel's "Dogtown," which returns Sept. 5 with a two-hour special, "Saving the Michael Vick Dogs."
At Dogtown, they figure Georgia's six years old, but it's hard to tell, since all her teeth, the most reliable age marker, have been removed. Nobody wanted her biting any of her mates, in the 11 or 12 times she'd been forcefully bred.
