Why So Many Black Dogs?

There are so many amazing dogs at the shelter right now and a great majority of them happen to be black.  It is unfortunate but black dogs are  most commonly, the last, if at all adopted - why?  The phenomenon may be due to a number of factors, including fear stigma against certain breed types, and the fact that large, black dogs are often portrayed as aggressive in film and on television.  The dogs on this blog and at our KCMO shelter are all unique in their own way.  They all have something to offer and deserve a home just like all the others.  

These two girls are  Mitzi and Nalla, adorable sisters that came in together, full of energy and fun.  Both great at fetch and enjoying the great outdoors.  They are too big to be stuck in kennels all day and are trying to be patient as the wait for their forever homes!  
Below we have Jango - a perfect medium sized dog.  He has just the right amout of energy and you could easily fall in love with his adorable smile!

Here are our big boys - Jerry Lee to the left and Jack to the right.  At first sight you may be a little intimidated by these boys, they are strong, but mature boys and out of their puppy phase.  They are both looking for their new families that they can be loyal to and start new adventures with.  Please don't make them wait too long!

This beauty is Fantasia, a mellow girl, just waiting her turn for her forever family.  She likes to cuddle and get scratches behind the ears.  Loveable girl and too wonderful to be in a shelter!

I couldn't leave out Brooklyn!  The pro at fetch!  It is her favorite thing to do.  She is very much deserving of a big yard and a family who will give her lots of attention.  Look at her face - she's waiting!

These doesn't even begin to give you a peek at all of the amazing black dogs we have.  All fighting to compete with the other dogs and the ones that look exactly like them.  Give these black beauties a chance - they have so much to offer and it is amazing how much you get to know their personalities when you volunteer.  Please help volunteer at your local shelter and spread the word about black dogs - they deserve our attention and love too!
