The Government advises anyone looking to acquire a pet dog to consider adopting a rescue in the first instance. Any dog, including the famous greyhound breed, is capable of providing owners with love, loyalty and pleasure for its owner and family. Animal rescue and rehoming charities are aware that black dogs can be harder to rehome than other colours and encourage people to adopt animals in their care, regardless of colour.
