The unidentified Tennessee owner sent the bulldog to a kill shelter because he suspected the dog was gay. When the dog’s photo as posted to “Jackson TN Euthanasia” his plight garnered attention.
“This guy was signed over to [Jackson Rabies Control], not [because] he’s mean or [because] he tears things up, but because … [h]is owner says he’s gay!” the caption under the photo explained. “He hunched [sic] another male dog so his owner threw him away [because] he refuses to have a ‘gay’ dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine [sic] thing I’ve ever heard, it’s still discrimination!”
The post additionally threatened that the dog would lose his life today if he weren’t adopted, due to a lack of room at the facility…
“I am adopting this big boy first thing in the morning,” wrote a woman who identified herself as Stephanie Fryns of WOOF Connections on Facebook, according to Gawker. “He will be neutered/ [heartworm] tested/ and vetted. He will be temperament tested and then places in a rescue verified and approved home.”
