Dog Undergoes Gender Reassignment Surgery, Finds New Home

Meet Red, a rather unusual specimen. Red was born with both male and female reproductive organs. Sharon Blechinger, director of the Helping Every Animal League (HEAL) paid out of pocket to have gender reassignment surgery performed on the dog. Now he is recovering and ready to go to a new home.

Meet Red, a rather unusual specimen. Red was born with both male and female reproductive organs. Sharon Blechinger, director of the Helping Every Animal League (HEAL) paid out of pocket to have gender reassignment surgery performed on the dog. Now he is recovering and ready to go to a new home. Fifteen people have applied to adopt the lucky pooch thus far, but a decision regarding his final home will not be made until August 20th.

Sources close to Red say he is relieved to know that he will not be remembered as the first dog in history to not ever want to go out. 😉

  1. Wow didn’t know that this can happen to dogs too!! Bet that Red is one happy boy now…

  2. That is most interesting. I wonder how they decided to makes Red a boy and not a girl? Did he have to undergo psychological testing? Well, anyway, I hope he finds his Most Pawfect Home That Ever Was real soon!

  3. That’s crazy! I’m so happy for him, though, that he landed in the right hands and is on his way to a new home. Go Red!

  4. Wow. I’ve never heard of this either, but Red can’t be the only dog ever to be forn this way, and in need of this kind of surgery. There are probably more gender confused dogs walking around out there somewhere.
