Cute, Funny, and Unique Names for Your Black Dog

Black dog name
Adopting a dog as a pet and naming it is a very beautiful and enjoyable process for any dog owner! However, the dark-skinned dogs get overlooked in the process due to their color. If you have broken this vicious norm, Buzzle has listed several names for your black four-legged friend!
What is BDS?
Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which light-colored dogs are chosen for adoption over the black ones. The reason for this syndrome can be traced back to the negative connotation associated with the color black and black-colored dogs, in particular, defined in books, movies, and popular media.
The taboo of color discrimination exists among mankind; however, a color bias among animals is definitely surprising. Animal shelters across the world have reported customers' preference for dogs with light coat colors than their dark-colored counterparts. Since the color black is associated with negativity, a black dog becomes the last choice for adoption.

Some probable reasons of BDS

➦ Black dogs are perceived to be more aggressive, hence light-colored dogs are considered to be a safer option than the dark-colored ones.

➦ Black color is considered as the color of evil.

➦ Black dogs are believed to shed more hair.

➦ The agitations by the animal shelters and rescues against this ridiculous syndrome has made owners aware of the other prevalent qualities in these dogs than just the color.
