Big Black Dog Syndrome - BBD

Big Black Dog syndrome - A Challenge Before the Animal shelter

When it comes to dog adoption, the animal shelters and dog rescue centers are usually called upon. One the biggest challenges that most animal shelters are facing is what is known as Big Black Dog Syndrome. It is a syndrome seen in many pet lovers, who pass over the back dogs, without adopting them. The Big black dogs (BBDs) have proved to be the hardest dogs to find homes for — even though they are in good health and human-friendly animals.

Researches have carried upon by specialists, and a few probable factors have been recognized playing their roles behind Big Black Dog syndrome. Fear stigma against black dogs play imensely significant role behind Big Black Dog syndrome. Belief that color black is a symbol evil or that black dogs are more dangerously aggressive than their lighter counterparts have also been recognized as a reason for Big Black Dog syndrome. Belief and (sometimes not necessarily a fact) that black colored dogs for certain breed are faulty makes the novice backyard breeders pass over the black puppies to the animal shelters.

Evidences are there that particularly black dogs - both mixes and pure breeds, are horribly euthanized at many shelters because people pass them up quite frequently.

Records have shown that black dogs are mostly the last to be adopted, despite the fact that the black dogs are just as adorable and as gorgeous as the lighter colored dogs. Fact is that they appear to be more shiny than their lighter counterparts. It is to be remembered that life has no color. Love is never black. A solid black German shepherd Dog can make a pet as good as its black-tan and solid white counterparts. Thankfully some of the organizations have already started off with necessary campaigns to educate the novice dog enthusiasts about Big Black Dog (BBD) syndrome. Many associations and responsible black dog breeders have strongly stood against the the empirical basis for the bias against the black dogs. Some of the associations are doing appreciable job by adopting serious steps to exhibit black dogs as more appealing and gorgeously beautiful.
