Owner Sends 'Gay' Dog To Be Euthanized (PHOTO)

Sometimes a dog gets lucky and gets rid of their ignorant owner too!

A Jackson, Tenn., resident surrendered his "gay" dog for euthanization to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter on Jan. 29 because he saw his male pitbull/American bulldog mix "humping" another male dog, the Examiner reports.

The Huffington Post confirmed with Jackson Rabies Control, a high-kill shelter, that the dog had been surrendered because his owner believed he was "gay."

A Facebook campaign was set up to try and save the "gay" dog, according to the Atlantic. A Facebook post detailing the troubling situation called for immediate action.

Via Facebook:

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, the healthy pup has been saved. ....

1. Smells fishy. Does it pass the Snopes Test?

2. The article says HuffPost checked it out with the pound

and it passed their sniff test.

The article talked about checking the dog for evidence of dogfighting, since the owner was clearly that level of utter moron.

My guess is that the dog humped another male and turned the moron on and he panicked. If he ever gets another dog, he's going to be in for another ugly surprise. Even female dogs hump each other from time to time and male dogs have a habit of trying to hump their owner's leg.

4. "Gay dog" refused entry to restaurant

“Gay dog”, “guide dog”. I guess in Australia, they sound similar.

5. That's the other reason the story is probably legit.

Nothing much you can say about homophobics can possibly top the real thing. It's the Poe's Law of sexuality.

9. Not sure if the old or new owner named him.

The Huffpost states
"A Jackson, Tenn., resident surrendered his "gay" dog for euthanization to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter on Jan. 29 because he saw his male pitbull/American bulldog mix "humping" another male dog, the Examiner reports."


the article also states
"Although animals can be gay, dogs mount each other to express dominance, for play or because of nervousness/excitement, Psychology Today notes."


Which is something I thought all dog owners/lovers knew.

13. What a Moran! Dogs will hump anything that doesn't move out of the way...

... and this guy did not know that?

Elton got lucky in more ways than one when he got given away to the pound.
