It's an astonishing fact that large-breed black dogs die every day, for no other reason than their color.
Superstition and lack of awareness are just as lethal to "dogs of color" as a gun.
These dogs stand almost no chance of being adopted, despite a complete absence of evidence that they're different in any other way from their lighter-colored brethren. Some people think that they're vicious and aggressive; others think that they're boring. Despite the fact that these beliefs are completely untrue, shelters have little choice but to euthanize them, because no one will adopt them.
