Dog condemned to death row because his owner thought he was gay

US: Dog condemned to death row because his owner thought he was gay

by Joseph Patrick McCormick, 31 January 2013, 1:05pm

A dog in Tennessee will be put down today at an overcrowded kennel. He came to arrive there because his owner thought that he was gay.

The dog, whose name is unknown, is to be put to death today at an animal control centre in Jackson, Tennessee, after he was left there by his owner who thought he was gay.

According to the owner, the dog was seen “hunched over” another male dog, and so he thought he was showing signs of being gay.

Historically such behaviour was seen as a sign of dominance, and wouldn’t be indicative of a dog’s sexual orientation.

More recent research from shows research which suggests that such behaviour is “merely a nonspecific sign of arousal”, and that dogs will hump other dogs, or inanimate objects for “play” reasons, or because of nervousness or excitement, and that it is not necessarily a sign of sexual urge.

Those critical of the decision by the owner leading up to these events, have said that, even if the behaviour did indicate that the dog was gay, it wasn’t a reason to warrant turning him in to an overcrowded kennel.

A statement on the Facebook post giving details of the dog read that the shelter “open at 9 a.m. and he will die by 1 p.m. if not adopted as he was an owner surrender. Adoption fee is 38.00 and that only includes a voucher for a rabies shot. He looks to be a pit/american bulldog mix.”

The post, by a Facebook account named, Jackson TN Euthanasia, notes that the dog is located at Jackson Rabies Control, 146 Miller Ave, in Jackson, Tennessee.

I really hope that someone who has a spot for this dog saves it.

What kind of parents raised a soulless, heartless R2? Were you abused as a child? Your mother must have abandoned you, and probably had no clue who your father was.

If only it was possible to put down r2.

WTF? What an idiot.

Poor dog.

The owners an idiot! It's unfortunate that people like him even exist.

He's such a cute dog. This is a depressing story.

by Anonymousreply 1501/31/2013

The fact is, it's a pit bull mix, which aren't known for their docile temperament. However, saying it's gay is nothing but attention getting propaganda.

If the person who had the dog stated something like, " I'm getting rid of the dog because he's trying to dominate every dog around him", the story wouldn't have the spin.

Plus, it's Tennessee, enough said!

Why not? the last Pitbull I came into contact with was hanging out of a car window while his owners were getting gas. I gave him a hug and a kiss and he was as friendly as could be.

I don't want a loser like yourself agreeing with me R2.

No, hon, we support a woman's right to control her own uterus NOW, not just in some theoretical future, contingent upon the invention of a test to determine a fetus's sexual orientation.

Are you gay R2? I'm not an "animal rights" nut but I believe the reason for this man's executing his dog is terrible and if you support this man's excuse you are obviously homophobic or extremely self-loathing.

This dog did not attack anyone, it just appeared to be "humping" another dog which is what dogs fucking do. This is why there is so much outrage over this.

Poor dog. Not to mention the others who will eventually be euthanized because idiots don't take responsibility for their own dogs.

I volunteer as a dog walker at the RISPCA and have for the past 10 years and some of the best and worst dogs have been pitbulls. When the dog is balanced they are the best breed ever, but because so many of them come from horrible environments and fucked up gene pools they can have major behavioral issues. Most of this comes out in aggression against other dogs and not humans (in my experience anyway). As far as this asshhole getting rid of his dog because he felt it was "gay" well that's one of the more original reasons I've come across. It's no worse than the family who got rid of their cocker spaniel because it was going to cost them more to board while they went on vacation than it was to just spend the 80.00 to relinquish it to the pound. Nothing surprises me anymore. Some people should just be shot.

Update for a friend:

It's been confirmed that he's safe and sound now - a dedicated rescue group in Chicago pulled him from the shelter in TN - so I'm sure he'll find a forever home in no time!

R31 why are you on a gay board? You are obviously a conservative male who thinks poorly of women and "feminism"?

Thanks for posting, R35. So glad to hear he's safe.

The former owner was clearly a homosexualist.

I think it's time for 4Chan to do some investigating as to who the dim bulb who gave up the dog is. That would be a fun follow up.

I'm outraged that someone wanted to kill a dog for being gay, he was just born that way. Kill an animal for a good reason, like fur, but don't kill them for being gay!

[quote]You parrot the company feminist line well, [R27], but you fail to grasp, dear, that the pro-life position is the traditional liberal position.

Sweetheart, my position is that a woman gets sovereignty over her own body. Whether you choose to call that liberal or conservative is of no importance to me.

Of course R45. In Jackson, Tennesse, it would be more usual for them to shoot the gay dog.

How many of you are finding it HAWT to think about how sexy a dead gay pit bull is? I'll bet R3 is.
