As the founder of an animal welfare organization GPA Charities, I’ve spent the last 12 years involved with rescuing death row dogs from shelters. Everything from walking in and pulling them out of kill shelters, to taking them to vets, to bringing them to our rescue group, to placing them in foster care and working diligently to adopt them. I’ve spent many a weekend at Pet Smart with two dozen dogs trying to get them adopted. Through all this, one thing became apparent to me. Black Dogs were the least adopted of all the dogs we rescued. They were the least adopted in the shelters we went into as well. We, therefore, had a higher than usual selection of black dogs, versus light colored or mixed color dogs to rescue from our area animal shelters. What we also found was black dogs languished not only much longer in shelters, but rescue groups as well. Where we could adopt other colors out on average in three months, some black dogs took up to a year…. Some, even more. So, I did some research and found that our experience was not unusual, it was sadly normal. There is a phenomenon and its name is, Black Dog Syndrome (BDS). Black Dog Syndrome.
