    Cool Does fur color matter to you?

    i am planning on adopting some puppies next year and also a kitten. i have decided i am going to try to find shelter rescues with black fur. i love black dogs, they look so gorgeous.
    do you guys think about this kind of thing when adopting?
    if there is a blonde dog with a very nice personality i will consider, but i am really quite partial to black dogs at the moment lol

    I thought it did, but I ended up picking a puppy regardless of his color because he was so energetic and adorale!

    Go with your gut feeling about any animal you're considering. I would just say that if you wear a lot of light colors, think twice before getting a dark dog. My cat has black and white hair. I wear a lot of dark colors esp. in winter, so I spend a considerable amount of time keeping the white hairs at bay.

    I have pets of almost every color (black dog, Siamese cat, Tabby cat, gray and white cat & orange and white cat)...I'm covered in pet hair no matter what I'm wearing I would focus more on the personality than anything.

    My dog is a browinsh red with patches of white and black, so fur color doesn't really matter to me.

    He was a cutie and sweet, that's why I picked him.

    Toby was picked for me. He was a gift from a boyfriend. He is the kitty in my signature, and as you can see, he is impeccably dressed for the occasion in a silver tuxedo. I might have picked him myself, because he is so adorable.

    My other cat, Cassie, is a calico, and I never really thought I wanted one. I just picked her out of all the kitties at the shelter, because she was full grown, and I did not think I wanted a kitten. But her vivid color scheme has grown on me. I think it fits her flamboyant personality.

    At shelters here (England) black dogs and cats are harder to re-home Boo.

    My labrador is black and I love black dogs, I think they look sleek.

    The pets we adopted from shelters my mom picked out because they were weaker (I never went along, because I'd wanna bring all of them home). I guess to me fur doesn't matter at all: I just adopt the neediest mutts that come to me.

    I like certain colours on certiain breeds. But if you get a black on and walk it at night its hard to see, they also get hit by cars more because they are difficult to see at night
