Rescue dogs hoping for new homes this Black Dog Day

This Monday (1st October) is National Black Dog Day and what better way to mark the occasion than by celebrating the various breeds of dog with black coats in need of new homes. Dogs Trust Darlington has a number of black dogs currently in their care who are all waiting for their special someone to come forward and giving them forever homes.

Prince, aged three, Crossbreed Prince is a cute boy who is very charming, clever and full of energy. He can be shy around new people and would prefer to live in an adult only home, with no other household pets.

Zoe, aged two, Lurcher This beautiful lady loves to play and will spend hours with her toys. She is very friendly and could live in a household with other dogs and older teenagers.

Kate and Lass, aged two and three, Lurchers This gorgeous pair are sisters looking for a new home together. They draw confidence from one another, are fully housetrained and can live with children over the age of 11.

Bruno, aged 10, German Shepherd Bruno is a young dog at heart and is full of energy. He loves his food and will need some ongoing training when it comes to learning his doggy manners; but is a very friendly and loving pooch.

Domino, aged three, Lurcher Domino is a sensitive soul who can be shy when you first meet him, however he will quickly become your friend. He would benefit from a quiet home, where he can go for long walks in a rural setting.

Frankie, aged eight, Greyhound Frankie is a mature golden oldie who is looking for a nice retirement home. He could live with children over the age of eight as well as other dogs.

Jack, aged three, Lurcher Lovely Jack is a clever boy who is fully housetrained and loves showing off new tricks. He can be choosy about his canine friends and can live with young adults over the age of 14.

Roxie and Zana, aged eight, Dobermans These best of friends are looking for a new home together. They draw confidence from one another, absolutely adore human companionship and can live with young adults over the age of 16.

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

“National Black Dog Day is important for many of our canine residents, as it is an opportunity for them to take centre stage and be seen for the fantastic family pets they can make.

“We are always on the lookout for opportunities to promote our residents and give them as many chances as possible to find suitable owners, regardless of each dog’s age, colour, breed or background.”
