DogDaz Feral Friday: Black Animals Are The Last Adopted

01 Aug

ff 8.1.14

Not sure why people fear black animals, but we know they do.  I never would have gone out to adopt a black dog if a local rescue group didn’t introduce us to this fearful little 4 month old black dog covered with demodex mange, scars, and a collar embedded in her little nexk.  I can not image life without Louise now.

“Thanks, Mom, I can’t imagine life without you either. Adopt a human today!” – Louise (aka Lulu Belle)

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

      Lulu is getting gray around the muzzle and she is only 4 1/2. We love every color and combo too. The cool thing about animals is they don’t chose their owners by our skin but by how we smell, a much smarter selection process, I think.

    Sweet Louise’s story is much like my little black Chancy’s story. Like you I cannot imagine life without him. We also have Baby Boy who is black and both of them are so sweet, smart and special. People who do not have at least one black dog or cat in their lives have no idea what they are missing. Love the crossed legs picture…so sweet. Hugs and nose kisses

      Thanks Mags. I never really even thought about black dogs until she came along. It wasn’t that I didn’t want one, but now, I think I will always have one. Louise always has to have a paw on me to keep me close. Thanks for stopping by. – Lorian and the Zoo

    I have always had a black dog in my pack. Before Midnight I had Felix who had a long and happy life. I also had his uncle Drifus who I lost to prostrate cancer at the age of 10. Now I have Midnight who not only is a pit bull mix but black also. I had a rescue pull her on the morning she was to be killed. I don’t use the word euthanize because what they do is kill. Look up the word euthanize. Black dogs do not meet that description. Nor do many other excuses that they used to kill.

      So horrible what is done. Yes, they kill. They are kill shelters (why do we call them shelters at that point). I love the names you pick, where did Uncle Drifus come from?

        From the show Empty Nest. .They spell the name different than I did but pronounced the same. Drifus was really a smart dog he could open cupboards,the door,The refrigerator. I did a big shopping and and next day went to work came home from work to find Drifus opened the fridge and they had a party. I had 3 dogs at the time. Drifus was running around happy as can be with a pudding cup all sealed and backwards in his mouth. They ate like kings and Queen that day. The next day I duct taped the fridge and he still got in. The 3rd dog was Drifuses Mom .

    We don’t have any black pets right now, but Mom has adopted a 100lb black dog and a black cat, both were great pets.

    That’s so sad. I love black animals. Black is beautiful no other color looks so great in the sun :o)

    I’ve read a few interesting theories, notably one which suggest that black pets aren’t adopted as much because they are more difficult to photograph. For people looking through a site like petfinder, it can be hard to see the face/features of black pets. To combat that problem, I know there are a number of photographers working to teach the best way to photograph these dark coated beauties.

      OK – I don’t buy it, but it is possible. As someone with one black and one blond, learning to balance light is hard, but not impossible.

    Oh, dear, sweet Louise… If I saw you in a shelter I couldn’t have resisted you. The fur colour thing never did make sense to me! My two Westies often end up black anyway!
