Fortunately Fred Levy, a 44-year-old photographer from Maynard, Massachusetts, is standing up for black dogs through the Black Dogs Project, a photo series that photographs these poor dogs against a dark background. The initiative tells the story of the difficulties these dogs face when waiting to be adopted.
One such dog is Bo who is a blind Lab mix who is still looking for his seeing eye owner. He came from a kill shelter down South, and has been staying with a woman who is fostering him.
Denver's owner takes him to be with people who need comfort. In fact, he spent time with a first responder fro the Boston Marathon bombings, giving support to victims as they were dealing with the traumatic experience.
If you live in the Maynard, Massachusetts, area and have a black dog who has a story to tell please contact Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org and your dog will be a part in the Black Dogs Project.
Another way to raise awareness of the plight of black dogs you can "like" The Black Dogs Project on Facebook.
