October 1st is National Black Dog Day. Did you know that black dogs are:

  • Less likely to be adopted.
  • More likely to be euthanized.
  • Often passed over in shelters for lighter colored dogs.

“How can that be?” you may be wondering. Those are just the sad statistics. Maybe people don’t want black fur on their furniture. Maybe these dogs’ personalities are hidden beneath their ebony coats.

For National Black Dog Day, let’s all take a closer look at black dogs and make sure that next time we are in a shelter or rescue, we aren’t passing up those beautiful black coats unintentionally. Here are 30 beautiful black dogs on Instagram!
