This month, love a black dog.

With Valentine's Day in the middle of the month, we decided February was the perfect month to show a little extra love to our black dogs.  Have you ever heard of Black Dog Syndrome?  Probably not.  It's understood that black dogs are often the last to be adopted in shelters.  Black dogs are often overlooked for lighter color dogs.  Why?  

Your guess is as good as ours.  Black dogs can be hard to photograph and therefore hard to promote.  Sometimes black dogs can appear scary or menacing.  Some people consider black dogs as "ordinary" or "boring".  

Black dogs have just as much love to give as any other colored dog.  This month we want to put our black dogs in the spotlight.  When you adopt any of our black dogs, you'll get a special adoption gift bag, our way of saying thanks for giving a black dog a chance.  

All month we'll be having special events and activities - all dedicated to black dogs.  Stay tuned to our blog for weekly adoption, fostering and awareness stories.  Come out to Maple Grove Dog Park every Sunday in February 10am - noon with your pup as we celebrate black dogs (all dogs welcome)!

We have so many black dogs in care right now, check out how beautiful they are in a special video dedicated to these black beauties.  Visit our Love a Black Dog page with more information about Black Dog Syndrome and why MMDR loves black dogs.
