These owners abandoned their dog for this unusual reason

There are many reasons why someone might give up their dog, not all of them are bad. But these owners had a bizarre reason.

A dog was abandoned at a local shelter in North Carolina for a bizarre reason. The owners thought their dog was gay, so they abandoned him.

Fezco was left at the shelter

Fezco is a dog of an unknown breed and is estimated to be around 4 or 5-years-old. He was abandoned at the Stanly County Animal Protective Services in Albemarle, North Carolina.

The reason that the owners abandoned Fezco was that they thought he was ‘gaynine’ because they saw him humping another male dog, so they didn’t want him around anymore.

The shelter has put Fezco up for adoption and is hoping he will find his loving forever home soon and the shelter has confirmed they have received many applications for the dog.
