The reason for the club: Have you ever been to the shelter, walked down a line of kennels and seen mostly black dogs? Many times black dogs seem to be overlooked in favor of lighter colored dogs. There are different theories behind this, maybe it's because they are harder to see in the back of their kennel, so there isn't an instant connection. Maybe the photographs you see on the website aren't able to depict their features as well as a light tan or brown dog. No matter what the theory behind this phenomenon is - the fact remains, black dogs are the most commonly overlooked "type" of dog in shelters.The fact is, the color of the dog has no bearing on his or her temperament, behavior or health. Dogs come in all sorts of sizes and colors each with it's own personality.It is this personality that draws us to them, not the color of their fur. Remember this the next time you are looking to add a new family member, take a good look at who is in that kennel, you might just find your new best friend. Take advantage of the opportunity to showcase your dog and show the world the true beauty of the black dog.
