A dog's owner in Jackson Tennessee surrendered his dog to Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter on January 29th because he witnessed his male dog "humping" another male dog.
Although such behavior is not necessarily considered to be homosexual when it comes to canines, it is possible that the dog is actually gay, considering over 1,500 species have been shown to exhibit homosexuality, including but not limited to dogs.
Just as some people are born gay, some dogs are as well.
Whether this was typical dog behavior or an expression of homosexuality on the part of the dog, it goes without saying, that all pet guardians should love and provide for their companion animal (as long as they're financially able to) for the duration of the animal's life.
We received many reports from our supporters asking us to get involved and step in to save the dog. However, as our policy states, we are unable to use our time attempting to prevent the humane euthanasia of a caged and suffering animal when there are cases that need our attention in which animals are being abused as we speak.
The dog was scheduled to be humanely euthanized by a veterinarian at 1:00pm today (January 31, 2013). However, if you live in the area, and are financially sound and able to adopt him, please call the shelter at 731-668-4211 to inquire about adopting him if he is still available for adoption.
