Man Sentenced Dog To Death Because He Believes Pet Is “Gay”

A Tennessee man has gave away his pet dog to an overcrowded shelter where the poor little mutt faced being euthanized because he thought that the animal was gay.
The dog, which looks like some sort of pitbull crossbreed was scheduled to be put down by 1pm today, however the story went viral as animal lovers and non-idiots worked frantically to help find him a new home.

The owner told workers at the shelter in Jackson that he had seen the dog hunched over another male dog and believed that this meant his dog was out of the closet so he and gave him away because he did not want a homosexual pet!!

Animal experts have spoken out to say that though dogs have been known to occasionally display homosexual behavior this type of incident says more about dominance than it does about the sexuality of the animal, but I think that is really beside the point really!
There was a frantic appeal and the shelter posted this message to their Facebook page:

“This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he’s mean or bc he tears things up, but because… His owner says he’s gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a “gay” dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine thing I’ve ever heard, its still discrimination! Don’t let this gorgeous dog die bc his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He’s in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down tomorrow bc there is no room at the inn!”

Because the poor little pooch was an “owner surrender” he would have been put down by 1pm the following day, but thankfully the appeal worked and the “gay” dog was reportedly adopted by a woman called Stephnanie Fryns, who called the shelter before the dog was scheduled to be euthanized and arranged the adoption.

How ignorant, small-minded and homophobic do you have to be to give away your pet because you think it’s gay? This man clearly does not deserve to own a pet and knows sod all about dog behavior. I’ve seen dogs hump table legs, people legs, couches, soft toys, hell I’ve even seen one try to hump a cat, it doesn’t mean anything, it just means they are randy little creatures. And, I might add, so what if the dog was “gay”, big fucking deal!!
