15 Years Old … the last surviving dog from the infamous Michael Vick dogfighting ring has passed away … authorities at the BADRAP animal rescue org. confirmed on Monday.
The pup was estimated to be 15 years of ages.
According to BADRAP, Frodo was one of 48 dogs that were rescued after Vick’s dogfighting ring was broken up by law enforcement back in 2007.
The org. claims Frodo located a new house following the former NFL star’s arrest, and invested the last 14 years “being pampered like a royal prince with his new family.”
But, unfortunately, the org. says he died on Saturday … though they did keep in mind the canine had one last steak before he died.

Officials at the org. say 2 various other known surviving canines from the Vick case died lately also.
As we previously reported, Vick was released from the Atlanta Falcons and likewise spent time behind bars over his role in the case.
The ex-quarterback did excuse it all … and he later on went on to start for the Philly Eagles following his release from prison.
He’s since fought tirelessly against animal abuse … even advocating at the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2015 to pass a bill to allow cops to rescue pets from hot cars.
Vick ultimately left the NFL following the 2015 period, and he now works as an analyst breaking down games for FOX.
