Why is it that black dogs get so overlooked in shelters and in rescues? Black Dog Syndrome (BDS) is a phenomenon that stumps all of us in rescue – because we know and love all of these wonderful, loving and happy babies. Some people maintain it’s because the lighter dogs photograph better, as black absorbs the light. Some claim that it’s because lighter colored dogs are more expressive – it can be harder to see the expression in a black dog. There are many theories, but no one really knows why. Regardless, it’s a thing, and the awareness of it is October 1. To celebrate all our black beauties, we are offering an adoption special! We hope that we get all these wonderful pups into loving homes and that you all enjoy your adoption discount! Happy adopting and please spread the word!
