Black Dog Syndrome
According to the Black Pearl Dog website, black dogs are euthanized at a much higher rate in most shelters because the general public prefers lighter colored dogs. I admit to being surprised when I read this, because dh and I seem to prefer black dogs, for some reason.
Ours has been a real blessing to us.
Many people, apparently, fear black dogs and have groundless superstitions concerning them (and black cats as well).
Please, the next time you are thinking of getting a dog, go to a shelter and consider getting a black one.
