Dog Sent to be Euthanized because Owner Thought He was ‘Gay’

A resident of Jackson, Tennessee sent his dog to be euthanized because he thought the dog was ‘gay.’ The dog, after being sent to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter on January 29, was adopted by someone else. It was reported by the Examiner that the owner saw his dog, the pitbull/American bulldog mix was ‘humping’ another male dog.

A Facebook page was created in an effort to save the dog from being euthanized. The following was written on the 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!

Stephanie Fryns, who works with Woof Connections, said that she intends to adopt the dog.

“I am adopting this big boy first thing in the morning,” she wrote on the Facebook page for the animal rescue group Save The Animals Together (S.T.A.T.). “He will be neutered/ htwm tested/ and vetted. He will be temperament tested and then places in a rescue verified and approved home.”

An employee at the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter told The Huffington Post that the dog was adopted on Thursday. The dog had been scheduled to be euthanized at 1 p.m. Thursday. The name of the dog is Elton and despite redness around the ears, Fryns does not think he was used in dog fighting.

“[Elton] was pretty friendly so far,” Fryns told ABC News. “He’s pretty scared of everything, which is understandable. But he loved the car ride.”
