or even the first one lol. She lost her dog today and has spent a lot of money trying to save it. But the poor dogs kidney's failed..:sad: So she needs someone to love up, and I think one of these will fill the big hole in her heart.

Helene, am working on it now. If it is a go, if you can get one of them to Sudbury, I can do the last run to Timmins. It is about 4 hours from here.

What is up with that Helen? Why won't they adopt out a black dog?

What is up with that Helen? Why won't they adopt out a black dog?

Black Dog Syndrome
Did you know that Black Dogs are generally the last to be adopted and are euthanised in shelters in much larger numbers? People may consider them too “plain”, think they are menacing, or simply don’t notice them because their dark color makes them disappear in their kennels. Those involved in animal welfare have dubbed this phenomena "Black Dog Syndrome."
According to Wikipedia, Black Dog Syndrome is defined as “the low adoption and high euthanasia rate of black dogs in shelters. Black dogs are often the last to be adopted from shelters.”

Imagine People wont buy or adopt Black Dogs??

For many dogs awaiting US adoption, the speed with which they find a home may rest not on their breed, gender or age but on one trait that has no bearing on their personality or temperament.

Shelter officials have dubbed it black dog syndrome -- the propensity of dark-coated animals to be passed over for adoption in favor of their lighter counterparts.

Can I help Dodger.. Yes if I can find him a foster up here.. then I'd get him on the next transport out.. before he is PTS

If you cannot take him Helen - can you contact another rescue that could assist and bring him up for them? There is another Basset Hound Rescue in Ontario that is excellent.

Good luck Helen. So glad you are watching out for these dogs. So sad really that they would consider euthanasia based on color.
