The Black In The Syndrome

“Tongue red as an apple, dark hair as the noir, give me your heart my dear, dear four legged soul.”

What it is Black Pet Syndrome, according to Wikipedia is a phenomenon in which black domestic animals are passed over for adoption in favor of lighter-colored animals. Animal shelters often use the term BBD or BBC, or big black dog, big black cats to describe the type of larger dark-colored mixed-breed said to be typically passed over by adopters.

The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/black-dog-syndrome-study_us_56698faae4b009377b23ef4b) wrote in his article details as the ruff time that dark-colored doggies or kitties are thought to have making it out of shelters and into homes.

The Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2538920/Black-dog-syndrome-More-black-dogs-without-homes-color-fur.html) explain The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. They also wrote Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. The chances of being adopted are poor if you’re a black dog, even if they are pure breed or mixes.

BBC Nottingham has a video related to the syndrome cases (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-nottinghamshire-41686518/what-is-black-dog-syndrome)

I have two BBDs both adopted after awful starts to their life. I also adopted a tricolour setter with a bad history too. They are my loved family. Lovely boys.
