A friend of mine that knows someone that works at the local pound called me and said that they had a nice little Pit bull girl that was going to get euthanized(sp) b/c here time was up. They only keep them for 3 days, 3 DAYS how do they expect them to find homes in 3 DAYS!!! She knew I was sad about not getting the other girl and though I might want this girl. She is a little black girl around a year old. They told me the black ones never get adopted, no one wants them:Cry:. I want her... She gets spayed tomorrow and I can pick her up at 5...

She came in with her sister, I'm afraid she wont get adopted:Cry: and I could not take them both..

I will put up a few pics she's hard to see b/c she's black..

OMG!! Those adorable take me home eyes!!!! She is gorgeous! She reminds me of a dog I had as a child "Digger" was his name. He was a stray that wondered up that never left. lol He was one of the greatest dogs ever. He was a pit boxer mix or maybe rot and pit,,we were never really sure but he was the greatest. Congrats on your new girl! She is gorgeous!

I've heard that black dogs are invisible in shelters, such a shame.

Hope her sister finds a home too :Cry:

Gee, 3 days is an incredibly narrow window for anything. What a sweet face she has. I am so glad you found her.

Congrats to you, and Yay for her!! I can't wait to hear what you name her, and see what Floyd thinks, lol.

We have a rescue group here devoted to black dogs only because they are so hard to find homes for, I wonder why?? She is a beauty!

I don't know why!?!? I was thinking the same thing. Nothing wrong with black. When I'm looking for a pet ,color is the last thing I look at. Everyone has a color the like but would you pass on a great dog just b/c of color? Not me..

They told me at the pound that if there wonderful black dog and a misbehaving colored dog in the same room, the colored one will get adopted every time...

Oh her name is Zoe!!!!! My 8 year old picked it...

Black Dog Syndrome

Funny enough, the dog on their home page is not black! It's a blue heeler!! Go figure, lol

That's true.

So it's great that you've adopted one! I hope her sister finds a loving home also. It's so wonderful that there are loving homes out there for these often misunderstood sweeties.

Oh how sad, but so true. I've been told it even happens with cats too. A friend who volunteers at a local shelter tells me black kittens are usually the last ones in the litter to be picked (except during Halloween, then they aren't allowed to be adopted).

I have heard this too, and the reasons why are too disgustiing
Yeah that's true. I used to work at a shelter and we were not allowed to adopt out all black or all white cats during Halloween. People can be so sick! :Angry:
