The Scottish SPCA organization decided to promote dog adoption through adorable sweaters because there are many dogs looking for a forever home where they can give and receive a lot of love. Unfortunately, some dogs have more difficulty than others in this process, and it is typically dark-haired dogs.
Regardless of the breed, light-coated dogs are adopted by people more rapidly, while other canines are judged and kept in many shelters for several months.
The Scottish SPCA’s director, Sharon Comrie, said:
“Dark Dog Syndrome is a factor that may affect whether or not animals in our care get adopted. Black dogs usually typically take the longest to find a new home, often through no fault of their own.
