Owner wants dog put down for being gay

A heartless homophobe gave his pit bull to a shelter to be euthanized because he caught him humping another male dog and thought he was gay. According to the group Jackson Tennessee Euthanasia:

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!


Luckily, things turned out okay for the abandoned pooch, after a woman named Stephanie Fryns contacted the kennel and said she’d like to adopt him. She’s posted on Facebook that she’s getting support from people all over the US who are going to help her with fees and vetting.


It’s days like this I love the internet, and not just for porn, but for saving lives! I’m glad this dog’s story was so widespread and hope he lives a long and gay (the happy definition or otherwise) life with his new owner!
