I am only 16, but I know I will someday get a dog, and when I do, I will adopt a probably older, black dog. I have only just heard of Black Dog Syndrome and it should receive more attention, but thank you so much for posting this on the internet!
I am glad I found this and I will be letting as many people as I can know about this. It is so cruel and horrible how so many people choose dogs based only on their looks, not based on their needs or what they can offer the dog. A lot of people who buy dogs or cats do it for only very selfish reasons, and pay almost no attention to her/him after the first month! Sorry, now I'm ranting. Anyway, thank you so much for posting this!
