A black dog, along with other black animals, spends the longest time in shelters just because of their color. There’s a phenomenon called “black dog syndrome” wherein black dogs are least favored for adoption. Black dogs are often overlooked in the shelter but little do most people know that a black dog is just as awesome as other dogs!
This October 1, we’re celebrating the National Black Dog Day to honor all the loveable black dogs out there. This dog holiday was founded by Colleen Paige, also the founder of National Dog Day, to raise awareness about how adorable black dogs could be. These beautiful pooches are loving and loyal too just like any of your furry friends out there.
