The supposedly "gay" dog.   (Facebook)

(Newser) – The Internet came together to save a dog after his owner dumped him at a Tennessee shelter ... because he thought the dog was gay. A picture of the bulldog, who was in danger of being euthanized, was posted to Facebook in an attempt to find an adopter. "He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a 'gay' dog," wrote the poster. Gawker picked up the story, and soon the Madison County animal shelter was flooded with calls, says a worker there.

In fact, when the Tennessean got in touch with the shelter for an update, the guy who answered the phone estimated he'd gotten about "10 million calls," and urged people to please stop because the dog is safe: "It has been adopted already. It is gone,” he says. “He’s in good hands."
