Black dog syndrome is a phenomenon in which black dogs are passed over for adoption in favor of lighter-colored animals.
We hate that this is true. We all love the black dogs and it breaks our heart that it always takes longer for them to be adopted.
Ringo is perfect. Hopefully he can change someones mind about adopting a black dog. He is about 1 yo and is a lab mix. Look at his eyes. You can TELL how very sweet he is. Ringo was an excellent boy at our adoption event on Saturday. He was very calm and enjoying the attention he was getting..
