Death for Canine Victims of Black Dog Syndrome

Dog owners who relinquish their black dogs, handing them over to a shelter or turning them loose on the streets, may be signing a death warrant due to Black Dog Syndrome.
Unfortunately, black dogs are euthanized more than any other color according to rescues and shelters across the country. Black dogs have been considered the underdog of all homeless dogs for many years, their lives ending with two counts against them. One is their size and the second is their color. For this reason, the black dog is almost always the first to be euthanized and the last to be adopted out to a forever home.
