Pooch screwed

Alpha dog threatened with demiseThis little fellow, perhaps a pit/American bulldog mix, was sent to the pound by his owner for reasons of imagined moral turpitude:

According to the prior owner, the dog was seen “hunched over” another male dog, therefore, in this owner’s mind, the dog must be gay.

The former owner apparently does not know that “hunched over, aka humping behavior” is typically a sign of dominance in dogs, rather than something to signify a dog’s sexual orientation.

At this writing, rescue operations were pending: otherwise, the pound will pull the plug at 1 pm.

Update, 1:30: Adoption accomplished.

    My only recourse from screaming “YOU FUCKING MORON!” at this is to imagine the owner descending into the bowels of PMITA prison and being made someone’s bitch every hour on the hour, then being told rather than it being a sign of dominance, it must mean he’s gay and okay, buddy, death row for you.
    And yes, I think about things like this far too much but at least I’m getting more efficient at it.

    Oh, thank goodness (on adoption accomplished). I’m not an animal behaviorist or anything and even I know that a dog (or cat, or rabbit, or whatever) humping another animal of the same sex is a dominance gesture.

    I will just observe I am very grateful that that sort of dominance gesture does not extend to (most of) humanity.

    Any chance we could get that idiot ‘fixed’ in order to protect the species?
