'Gay' dog in Tennessee shelter gets speedy adoption after story goes viral

Stop calling the Madison County animal shelter — the gay bulldog was adopted hours ago.

The Jackson, Tenn., shelter was flooded with phone calls after a story on the website Gawker went viral, a man who answered the phone there said.

The 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.
