PORTLAND, Ore. - Jesuit High School in Portland has dropped plans to auction off a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy as part of a fundraiser.
The school told KGW it's responding to animal rights protesters who blasted the school on social media.
The school says it disagrees but won't include the dog in the May 3 auction to protect the privacy of dog owners and breeders who work with the school.
It says other dogs that have been auctioned in the past have been place in responsible homes of school supporters.
