'Gay' dog saved from euthanasia by Facebook campaign

Dogs hump one another. This is a fact of life. Apparently one man missed that memo, though, because he brought his American bulldog mix to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter in Tennessee to be put down because he thought the dog was gay. That really pissed off a Facebook user who goes by the name Jackson TN Euthanasia , who saved the "gay" dog with a Facebook campaign.

"This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he's mean or bc he tears things up, but because... His owner says he's gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a 'gay' dog!" he wrote. "Even if that weren't the most assinine thing I've ever heard, its still discrimination! Don't let this gorgeous dog die bc his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He's in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down [Jan. 31] bc there is no room at the inn!"

Fortunately, a woman by the name of Stephanie Fryns, a veterinary technician affiliated with the no-kill animal shelter Woof Connections, stepped up and saved the adorable pooch. She told Daily Mail that she's going to name him "Elton."
