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 , not he’s mean or he tears things up, but because … [h]is owner says he’s gay!” the caption under the photo explained. “He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away he refuses to have a ‘gay’ dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine 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/ tested/ and vetted. He will be temperament tested and then places in a rescue verified and approved home.”
