Dog Dumped At Local Shelter By Owners For Being “Gay”

 

Former owners of a dog in North Carolina have received some backlash on social media after abandoning him because they thought he was gay…

 

Fezco

 

Fezco the dog is four to five years old and is known to get along with both people and other animals, making him a wonderful pet for any loving family.

 

 

Unfortunately, the cute pup was abandoned in Stanly County when he humped another male dog, which is a very regular occurrence among dogs.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals stresses that ‘mounting, thrusting (humping) and masturbation are normal behaviours exhibited by most dogs’, whether it be in relation to other animals, people, or objects.

 

 

Despite this, it appears that Fezco’s owners felt that his behaviour demonstrated showed he was sexually attracted to other males, and that he could no longer live with them.
