Black Dog Syndrome

Have you ever heard of the “Black Dog Syndrome” in relation to dog shelters? Well, its a sad fact that the majority of dogs in shelters that are black unfortunately get left behind or euthanised simply because of their colour…..for example, if there was a golden Lab and a black lab needing rehoming unfortunately the majority of the time the golden lab is chosen over the black lab. There is this ridiculous perception that black is somehow, dangerous and menacing so therefore they are just not chosen over the lighter coloured dogs. I own a beautiful black Greyhound that not only has a beautiful nature but I love his gorgeous glossy black coat. Come on people lets stop with this colour bias and just adopt a dog that needs a loving home.
