Sweet and shy Halle, previously known only as of the 22 Michael Vick fighting dogs living at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, has taken her first stop toward adoption by moving in with a foster care family.

Halle had spent the previous 12 months at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, after she and 21 other pit bulls were cleared by the U.S. District Court of Eastern Virginia to be brought to Best Friends.

Months of individual work with the dogs by Best Friends trainers made it possible for Halle to be the first of the dogs to take a step toward adoption. Halle’s new location and the identity of her new caregivers will not be made known to the general public in order to protect Halle and the foster family. However, her steady progress with Best Friends trainers put her in a position to be the first of the Vicktory Dogs to go into foster care.
