It appears as though Twitter is the most popular way for professional athletes to unload their pets these days.Last week, Oklahoma City Thunder's Kendrick Perkins made headlines by selling his English bulldog on the popular social media site.On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis continued the trend by giving away his beloved English bulldog via Twitter, too.Unlike Perkins, who said his canine couldn't be around small children, Davis never gave a reason for wanting to get rid of his dog.
