Black dogs and cats are beautiful, and I don’t know why many of them are left in shelters. I say that because black dogs and cats are usually overlooked by potential adopters. Most of my dogs have been black and they are just as wonderful as the lighter coated dogs.

Animals Best Friends has several black dogs and cats that are looking for good homes. If you are looking to add a pet to your family, please consider adopting a black dog or cat.

Oliver is a handsome, loving boy with a black and brown coat. He is a shepherd mix with a great disposition. He walks well on a leash, is kennel trained, and housebroken. He would be a great companion for an adult or do well in a family with teenagers. Oliver gets along very well with other dogs and loves his caregivers.

Another handsome boy is Sport. He is a lab boxer mix and has a shiny black coat with white accents. He is playful and energetic. Sport loves to play in the kiddie pool on a hot summer day and loves his toys. He is kennel trained and does well with older children.

Summer is a beautiful girl with a shiny black coat. She is a very playful lab mix. She loves to run in the yard and play with her toys, and in the summertime she loves to play in the kiddie pool. She is a sweet girl that needs a family of her own.

If you are looking for a dog to join your family and think one of these beautiful black dogs might be a good fit, please go to our website and complete an application.

When adopting please don’t overlook the black coated animals looking for good homes. They need loving families too.
