Black Beauties

Can you believe that black dogs are passed over for adoption more than dogs of other colors? Or that some people find black dogs hard to photograph or paint? As the onetime owner of a lovely black dog, I think they deserve the very best – because black is beautiful!

This is Josie. Her mom was a black Lab and her dad was a German Shepherd/Husky. Josie got her mom’s jet black fur and her dad’s beautiful Husky tail. She was the only puppy in her litter to get an all-black coat.

Black or dark-colored dogs can take some extra effort to photograph in their best light. Brighton Dog Photography has some tips if you’re trying to take a good photo of one.

It can take a little extra time to capture the beauty of a black dog… but it’s so worth it!
