Dog abandoned at North Carolina shelter because he’s gay
We know that anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment has become a seriously divisive subject in recent times (despite it simply being about human rights), but even dogs aren’t immune to bigotry it seems and they ain’t even human!
The Stanley County Animal Shelter in North Carolina wrote on their social media page that the owners of a handsome four legged mutt had decided to ditch the 4/5 year old (unsure of real age? GAY!) named Fezco after they caught him humping another male dog. The shelter now says that they are looking for a foster home before they find his forever family.
Despite the fact that Fezco’s previous homophobic owners didn’t approve of his lifestyle (doggystyle?), the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ states that this behaviour is actually pretty standard. Yes, we could have told you that.
They said on their website: “Mounting, thrusting (humping) and masturbation are normal behaviours exhibited by most dogs … They mount and thrust against other animals, people, and objects, such as wadded-up blankets, dog beds, and toys. Sometimes, dogs just rub against people or objects (without mounting them), or they lick themselves.”
Well that couldn’t sound gayer if it tried! We support Fezco’s lifestyle and if he’s not sporting a rainbow neckerchief on a float at his nearest Pride this summer we’ll be very upset.
Unsurprisingly they have been inundated with offers to adopt Fezco who is apparently very friendly with other animals (no shit!) but even Cardi B jumped on the gay dog bandwagon with the Tweet below. Fezco, we love you, you are special, you are perfect as you are.
