Is it true no one loves black dogs? Well...it isn't "no one" that loves black dogs, but there does seem to be an issue with the adoptability of black dogs. According to Susan Smith of the Franklin County Dog Shelter, black dogs are less adoptable. Ms. Smith says, "If you have two similar dogs - one black, one light colored side-by-side with similar temperaments, both well behaved, both house broken and friendly, the light-colored dog will be adopted before the black dog". Why are black dogs less adoptable?
No higher homage has been to made to a pet than a dog. Any dog, your dog and mine. So love it, love it till it dies, don’t abandon it. Because it will NEVER abandon you. Never judge you, never discount you.
For those who have adopted a black dog, thank you for taking them in, color is no restrictor of love and devotion, for those who are looking at adopting right now, do have a care for them in your heart and give them a chance. We have some black dogs for you to consider. Prove the stats wrong, that black dogs are adoptable.
