Jackson, TN – A pit bull in Tennessee is about to be euthanized at a local animal shelter after it was abandoned by the owner. The reason the owner abandoned the animal? The dog humped another male dog and the owner doesn’t want to own a gay animal.
The dog was posted on a Facebook page that lists dogs scheduled to be put down at a Tennessee ”kill shelter.”
“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!”
Although homosexual behavior has been well documented within 1,500 species of animal, the fact that this dog got his groove on with another male dog doesn’t necessarily mean it prefers to feel its lipstick in the warm embrace of another male dog’s butthole (not that there’s anything wrong with that), as the dog could have simply been exerting his dominating over the other dog. Like in prison.
If you are interested in adopting this pit/american bulldog mix, the shelter opens at 9 a.m. and you have until 1 p.m. before the dog is disposed of. The adoption fee is $38 and includes a voucher for a rabies shot. The shelter is located at 146 Miller Ave., in Jackson TN and can be reached at 731-668-4211.
