In a story that recently went viral on the internet, a man in Tennessee surrendered his dog to a shelter for just that reason. The male Bulldog mix was apparently mounting other male dogs, giving the homophobic owner the skeeves. Fortunately, the dog was saved from euthanasia by a more enlightened human, who gave him a new life and a new name — Elton. After hearing that story, a lot of people have asked whether dogs can, in fact, be gay. Little do they know what a complicated and controversial question that is.
Join Now. If you've ever had a pet, you may have wondered if your dog or cat can be gay. You may have seen your dog mount another pup at the dog park — or watched as your cat seemed only to groom her female litter mates while ignoring her brothers.

However, when you look at the animal kingdom as a whole, especially those critters who are free to roam around without the confines of a human home, the idea of dogs and cats exhibiting homosexual behavior is something that deserves closer attention. Same-sex behavior has long been noted in animals of many different species.

The possibility of meeting other gay guys who have dogs is a crucial reason for owning a dog.
The world of animals is full of interesting — and very old — terms that describe the way certain animals look. In some breeds, a gay tail is considered undesirable in the show ring. A perfect example can be found in the logo of the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club, which is a stylized picture of a Pointer named Sensation. In other breeds, carrying the tail high like a flag and even curled forward, such as in the Finnish Spitz is either preferred or of little importance either way. And you should be, too.
