Just when you think that you have heard it all, along comes an excuse that completely boggles the mind. Tomorrow, a dog, name unknown, will be put to death at an overcrowded animal control in Jackson, Tenn., after his owner surrendered him there

Whoever coded this website is just terrible. I logged into Facebook to sign this petition for you but I have to go to another website 'thepetitionsite' and when I try to login, it doesn't link Care2, to the petition site and the only way to sign the petition is to 'sign up' again. It should log me into thepetitionsite.com automatically because it's apart of Care2. Until this is fixed I won't use the website.

Noted,Signed & Shared! How anyone could do this to their dog for such a reason is beyond me! How stupid this person is. I think he was looking for any reason to just dump him off at the shelter! He obviously was never a good pet owner and the dog may have ended up even in a worse situation! Frankly, I don't think he deserved this sweet dog! The dog definitely had more morality than him. I hope through our networking that we will be able to find him a good home this time with some intelligent and truly loving person or family! Bless this beautiful baby. I would be most willing to contribute to a fund to this shelter if it meant that they could keep him longer! I'm sure others would do it too, Dianne. If this would make a difference, please let me know.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Good news about that apparent save, let's hope it works.
I had a dog, decades ago, "inherited" from a girlfriend, which dog was a national AKC show champion, but coiuld not breed, because he was gay. So what!
Like Kit said, many species display gay behavior, including insects, I have read. Ten % of humans are gay, that's just the way it is; get over it.
 

Elsie Au (266)
Thursday January 31, 2013, 8:10 pm
Thanks for the wonderful update, Dianne. Even Elton is gay, so what? I rescued a cat who used to be very "playboy" until I had him fixed. After that, he stopped paying attention to any female and just spent his energy (and used his charm, of course) to win over another neutered male cat who did not like other cat. It took him 3 months to win over that male cat and they were good friends until they died. That was very cute :)

I once knew a woman who bred champion dogs.

When one of her girls came into heat, everyone wanted to help out. She would lock the boys out so the
girls were humping all the time.

I have also read that most animals are bi-sexual.

This stupidity was carried nationally. I am glad to hear that this innocent dog has been adopted. I hope that idiot in TN that dumped realizes what an idiot he actually is and never gets another animal.

may god rest our souls if humans can kill a poor innocent animal on such a ridiculous charge, in the wild male dogs mount each other as part of a dominance ritual.

A gay dog ??? I'm glad to hear that he was saved by common sense and good people.

Thanks for saving this dog! What kind of idiot would characterize their dog as gay? Or is it an excuse to get rid of the dog?

GAY is such a wonderful word! Happy, joyful, fun loving etc... To use the word by homophobic morons really makes me laugh. By the way I would rather have 3 BILLION homosexual Leonardo DaVinci's to heterosexual stalin's, hitler's or evil cheney. Thank goodness Elton has been saved and thank you Diana for your work on this.

Glad to hear that he has been saved. Otherwise, one of the most insane stories I've ever heard.

Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

Seriously???? Getting rid of the dog because he was "GAY".?!? If you believe that crap you will believe anything. The man didn't have the balls to put his big boy panties on and man up and take care of the animal that he got and then wanted to dump the responsibility off on someone else. The "Gay" theory is just a mirage to hide the truth of why he really got rid of the dog. He's a woos who doesn't even deserve an animal of any kind.
GLAD THAT HE IS SAFE and with REAL people with a heart and some responsibility.
