gaydogWhen a male dog mounts another male dog it is not a sign of homosexuality but often a sign of dominance. One uninformed owner in Tennessee surrendered his dog to an overcrowded animal shelter because he believed his dog to be gay after he noticed him “hunched over” another male dog. Now the dog has just hours to be saved from being put down by the shelter.

The dog, believed to be an American bulldog mix, was surrendered to an overcrowded animal shelter in Jackson, Tennessee.  The Jackson Rabies Control has scheduled to put down the dog today January 31st by 1 p.m. if not adopted since he was surrendered by his owner.  The shelter will open at 9 a.m. today and the adoption fee is $38.
