Screen capture of Gawker's post about a Facebook user putting his dog up for adoption because it was 'gay'
Jackson, Tenn. (The Tennessean) -- Stop calling the Madison County animal shelter - the gay bulldog was adopted hours ago.
The Jackson, Tennessee, shelter was flooded with phone calls after a story on the website Gawker went viral, a man who answered the phone there said.
story cited a Facebook post that claimed the dog's former owner dropped
it off at the shelter because it humped another male dog.
"His owner says he's gay," the post read.
The post also claimed the dog was set to be euthanized.
can't understand it," said the shelter worker, who declined to give his
name. "You know those dogs get on top of each other sometimes."
while the worker agreed an interesting back story can lead to quicker
adoptions, it also leads to too many phone calls for the small shelter
to handle, he said.
"I have had about 10 million calls this morning. It has been adopted already. It is gone," he said. "He's in good hands."
Anyone who's disappointed with that news can adopt one of the other available dogs, which may or may not be gay.
