Gay Dog Saved From Euthanization
"A dog whose rejection by his owner caused an Internet uproar has been adopted into a new, and presumably more tolerant, home.
The male pit bull mix, whose name no one seems to know, was left at the Madison County, Tennessee, Rabies Control animal shelter, CNN affiliate WBBJ reported.
According to the irreverent website Gawker, Facebook users had a hissy fit Wednesday when they found out the dog's owner got rid of the animal after he (the dog, not the owner) humped another male dog."
You think it's silly that a man abandoned a dog because he's gay? It's sillier and sadder when parents abandon their children when they come out of the closet.
Thanks to Facebook and Gawker the animal shelter was swamped with calls offering to adopt the gay dog.
The gay pooch has been adopted by a person associated with a rescue/shelter group.
Kudos to the Internet community for saving a dog who was scheduled to be euthanized.
