Dogs Trust’s Black ‘Fur-day’ pooches out to prove all rescue dogs are outstanding, even when they don’t stand out

With Black Friday [29th November] fast approaching, people might be desperately seeking lots of fantastic deals on the things they want; however staff at Dogs Trust’s Rehoming Centre in Darlington are out to prove you can’t put a price on the love of a dog.

Dogs Trust Darlington are celebrating their canine residents with black coats by taking ‘Black Fur-day’ photos of them in front of dark backgrounds, in a bid to get potential dog owners to look beyond the surface and see the personality of the dog. Very often dogs at the Rehoming Centre will receive lots of interest from potential dog owners when they look unique or quirky, however the reality is that every dog is truly unique in their own way.

Sue Embleton, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Darlington, said:

“Every dog in our care deserves the chance to be part of a loving family, regardless of their age, size, breed or colour. Each one has their own distinct personality that will suit the right type of family.

“We hope to make the point that even if a potential dog owner isn’t suitable for the dog they expect to get when they visit the Rehoming Centre, they should try and keep an open mind about the type of dog that could be even better suited to their lifestyle.”

Dogs Trust Darlington currently has two dark coated dogs which they have featured in Black ‘Fur-day’ photographs to highlight their dazzling personalities. These include:

Domino This sensitive lad is a five-year-old Lurcher who arrived at the Rehoming Centre more than a year and a half ago. He can be shy when meeting new people. However, once he gets to know someone, he will quickly become their best friend. Domino enjoys going on play dates with other dogs he knows well and would love an adult-only family to continue his training around other dogs at home. He is very gentle soul, who gives the best cuddles and extremely loyal.



Roxy This adorable two-year-old Lurcher became a resident at Dogs Trust nearly a year ago. She is very playful and always happy to meet new people, giving them the biggest welcome. Although she has lots of energy, she very much enjoys curling up on the couch for a snooze. She would be well suited to a home with children over the age of 16 and no other pets, so she can soak up all the attention for herself.
