Featured Rescue - Black Labrador Retriever

Well I haven't posted all weekend ... I haven't even done any Entrecard drops all weekend either! I apologize, but things have been hectic around here. Why does that seem to be the norm lately? Anyway, there was a big humane society function this weekend that kept me hopping as well as a new dog that has come to live with us (a perma-dog this time). I have a lot of topics boiling around in my brain and I will start jotting them down before I begin to boil over!







I've posted in the past about Black Dog Syndrome (BDS). For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, please take a look at the blog entry and familiarize yourself with it. In addition to my mantra of A Tired Dog is A Good Dog I have one more that is just as important ... All Knowledge is Worth Having. Share the info about BDS with your neighbours, family and friends.






Having considered BDS, I would like to bring your attention to Prissy. Prissy is one of the 4,894 dogs available on petfinder that are listed as Black Labrador Retrievers. If you count up the dogs listed as Black Labrador Retriever, Yellow Labrador Retriever, Choclate Labrador Retriever and Labrador Retriever, you would see that there are currently 28,404 dogs available for adoption.



Prissy gets along well with children, people and other dogs. So why is it so difficult to find a nice home for a nice dog?? Maybe because there are so many "nice dogs" out there.



So now that you know the numbers, care to wager how much more difficult it is to find a home for a Black Labrador Retriever as opposed to any of the other breeds listed?

I wonder why so many people don't want Black Labs. I think they are just adorable and that is part of the reason I am on my second black lab mix. Very smart and friendly. And so very sad that there are soooo many available!
