Show Us Your Black Dog!

September 11, 2011

BLACK DOGS … do you have one? If so, please share your photos! Pawsitively Texas is producing a black dog adoption promo video. As you may know, big black dogs carry a ‘color curse’ as they are among the least adopted. Last April I featured this great ‘Black Dog Adoption’ video by Rockwall Pets! They showed how cool it is to own a black dog! Let’s keep the momentum going to help raise awareness for black dogs – and fight back against this silly stereotype that keeps many black dogs from being adopted!

To submit your photo for consideration, please post on the Pawsitively Texas social media network at:

Submission of photos gives your permission for the photo to be used in this video.

For this video, I can only use the photos posted on (not Facebook); this site allows me to keep the photos organized for production. Thanks!

Here is how to submit photo(s) of your dog(s):

Step 1: Go to
Step 2: Sign in (if not already a member, you will need to first sign up – it’s very quick!)
