I have just been looking at the two staffies who have deformitites. Poor babies. They look lovely though, hope they get a great home.

I wish Dh would say yes. We already have Lola our SBT, may be able to talk him round once all the work on our house is done and our youngest is at school.... grin

Oh Scuttle I knew without even opening your link what it would be.
But I opened it anyway...
I keep letching over "Steve" the greyhound from Brentwood retired greyhound.
My DH is fed up with me saying
"Oh look at his eyes/his little ears/ his lovely legs..."

BTW why are the blacks hounds considered harder to home. Is this the most common colour?

I don't understand it either LordoftheFlies. We have a black allegedly whippet, but we suspect whippet/greyhound cross. He is beautiful.

blush I am obviously now known as the local "pusher" of greyhound hardcore.

Black dogs of all breeds are usually harder to home - all sorts of theories, ranging from the fact they can look more threatening and less appealing to the roots of folklore and tales about giant black dogs. In studies, has also been confirmed that in a shelter environment, black woofs are last to be chosen, along with a bias against larger, male dogs. So if you are a large, black male dog, you will have a harder time getting a home. sad

Don't understand it personally, as two of ours are black and I LOVE their colour, as nothing gleams like a black coat in good condition - it's like silk. However, we'd got ourselves organised and had ensured a bias towards black clothes (my inner Goth emerging) as everything was covered in hair (don't believe anyone who tells you greys don't shed). Then of course we ended up adopting our third who is a beautiful blonde - so now everything we wear will show up either the black hair or the blonde. grin
