Looking for love and loyalty

Jennie: Looking for love and loyalty

If black is beautiful and we all fondly remember those little black dresses that made us feel so chic, why are black dogs so hard to place?

The general public is not aware of how doomed black dogs are when they are brought to a pound, particularly black labs or lab mixes.

Here’s a challenge. Think outside the box. Beading Divas Lizzie Mead & Karyn Zoldan are trying to rehome 3 black dogs ages 8, 8, and 10. Due to no fault of their own, these dogs need another chance to live out their lives in good homes.

They are FREE to the right adopters pending a home visit. Shots are up to date and medical records available. Take your discrimination of black dogs and older dogs elsewhere.

Please share this blog post with friends and family and coworkers. Older black dogs need love too and have so much loyalty to share. You can read about Jennie, Gracie, and Charlie here.
