PUPPY LOVE

Heartless Owner Suspects Dog Is Gay, Turns Him In To Be Euthanized

gay-dogJackson TN Euthanasia reports that a pit bull was abandoned by his owner for the love that dare not bark its name.

The unlucky pooch faced death today:

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, Facebook user Stephanie Fryns contacted the kennel and arranged to adopt the little guy.

Fryns  posted on S.TA.T. (Saving the Animals Together)’s Facebook page  that “there is a lady in IL who is going to help with fees and some that are going to help with vetting.”

    Does anyone know this woman? I’d like to thank her personally. Stephanie, I am @joewatchestv on Twitter, I like to help with a bit of the adoption cost.

    @JoeWatchesTV: You can check out the STAT Facebook link.

    I’d like to officially nominate this dog’s owner as “Asshole of the Year”.

  • the other Greg

    @Kieran: And he’s in for quite a shock when he finds out that by this standard, all male dogs are “gay”!

  • muscl954

    Soooooooooooooooo many ignorant fools out there. He probably owns a gun, too.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Our Country is embarrassing. From the politicians and religious leaders down to petty Princeton peddlers of hate, it really becoming laughable.

    @muscl954:

    What does owning a guy have anything to do with this article? I would think if the owner had a gun he wouldn’t have had to contact the kennel, but hey all gun owners are conservative haters who kill gay pups.

  • GayAtheistLH

    Too bad the owner didn’t have himself put down. One less asshole in the world.

  • hyhybt

    People who would kill (or have someone else kill) their pets over something so trivial shouldn’t be allowed to have any.

  • hyhybt

    On the other hand… it would be a neat trick, if you *cannot* keep a pet or find someone to take him, to publicize as the reason something that will outrage enough people to all but guarantee his adoption. I’m not saying that’s what happened here.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    On the other paw, let’s euthanize the owner of this pet.

  • Maruchi

    Euthanasia. Only funny when it’s for companion cubes.

    I am so glad to hear this beautiful pup was adopted. I used to work at a no-kill cat shelter. The owner told me about a woman who returned a cat because it didn’t match her home decor! It’s unfortunate that ignorant idiots like her and this guy who rejected this pup are allowed to have pets in the first place.
    As a kid, I used to have a pet daschund that would hump anything…briefcases, people’s legs, our fixed male cat…he was a true horndog who provided many hilarious and embarrassing moments. Comes with the territory of owning a pet.

  • balehead

    So they’re going to neuter the gay dog???..very controversial….Is this like curing a gay teenager?…let him stay a gay dog!!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    “briefcases.” Intriguing. That would classify as a fetish.

    Well, clearly NOM needs to intervene in their lives!. No more heavy petting.

    Labradors are also shameless!

  • LadyL

    @hyhybt: I’m pretty sure that would be giving this bozo too much credit.

  • hyhybt

    @LadyL: I agree; it just seems like it would be a clever thing to do.

  • tjr101

    I’ll bet the guy considers himself a Christian conservative Republican, you know the type that also believes Obama is an atheist Muslim lol.

    Idiocy has no bounds in this country!

  • MickeyP.

    Gay animals? Next thing you know there will be gay marriage! Oh…wait…

  • Rock Star

    @Kieran: Totally!

    Stupid ignorant undereducated troubled folks will be stupid ignorant uneducated troubled folks. That pretty much includes 80% of Tennessee. Too bad about the southern states. I wonder if it’s the water? Or is it that nagging feeling I always have of southerners just not getting over the fact that they lost the war. Kind of like John McCain, they are just sore losers, afraid if they join the 21st century there will be nothing to complain about now that African Americans are no longer under their control. Gays including “gay” dogs are the new boogie man, or woman if you will.

  • LadyL

    @tjr101: Nah, this smells like a black thing. Could be wrong but I’d be willing to bet I’m not. I’m black and hail from Chicago’s South Side. Dog fighting is a hidden subculture of poor/working class black culture, and young black men who come from that world consider dogs like pit bulls an extension of the hyper-masculinity they feel the need to project. I’ll bet the guy considers himself a straight-up bad-ass gangsta when actually he’s an ignorant jerk.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    LadyL,
    This doesn’t bode well for the next owner of this Pit Bull, should the dog come from this sort of dog fighting background. Good insight there.
