10 Reasons You Should Adopt a Black Dog

October 1st is National Black Dog Day! Did you know black dogs are less likely to be adopted than dogs of other colors? We know black dogs can be a great addition to the family. So, here are ten reasons why you should adopt a black dog. 

  1. Black dogs are just as loving as other dogs. 
  2. Their dark fur makes them look more mysterious.
  3. They are easy to keep clean. 
  4. They look tough and protective. 
  5. They are already dressed for a formal event. 
  6. They look like models if you take pictures of them in the snow. 
  7. Well, they really look great in any photo because they’re gorgeous.
  8. They are natural heaters, so they’re great cuddle buddies. 
  9. With black dogs getting adopted less frequently than other dogs, you’ll be a trendsetter. 
  10. We have tons in our shelter that are ready to find their forever homes.
