Many people say that black dogs gets passed over at shelters or online, because they seem scary. Similarly, people pass by senior dogs because they look, well, old. Does that apply to me? Could you pass this up online?
I'm old. Am I scary? When we go for a walk, people stop to pet me rather than pass by.
You are missing out on a wonderful buddy, if you pass over adopting a black dog or a senior dog - because of looks or because of some false notion. I had eight teeth pulled once, and I'm still cute!
