Celebrate National Black Dog Day on October 1 and honor the many lovable black dogs out there! This day was created to help raise awareness of the fact that black dogs are often overlooked in shelters when people are looking for a pet to adopt. We want to celebrate these pups, who deserve just as much love and attention as any other color dog.
