Black Dog

It’s never been easy being a black dog. Most people do not like black dogs. Light colored dogs get adopted at the rate of the 3 to 1 compared to the black dogs.

One of the reason that black dogs are badly viewed is because of Hollywood. But it didn’t start with Hollywood, we had Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskerville…
