Safe Rescue For Black Dogs

by Gabby Pendrey

With the increase in animal photos on social media, it has caused people looking to adopt animals to want more colourful & lighter pets, leaving the darker pets left behind. This trend has happened across all pets, with cats & dogs being the worst at having all the dark/ black animals left behind, or longest to adopt.

To combat this, here's a shout out to Safe Rescue for Dogs. A charity with the belief that all dogs are equal and all equally deserve the good things in life. With a range of dark/black dogs ready for adoption, just waiting for their forever home.

Here's a few of the adorable dogs available for adoption and their stories, written by 'Safe Rescue Dogs Needing Homes'.


Bonnie is a four-year-old medium sized crossbreed. Bonnie was originally adopted from us three years ago but has recently been returned. Bonnie is a very happy, confident and energetic girl who really needs some basic training. She has a lovely character and a sweet nature but just lacks the basic good dog manners that would be expected in a dog of her age. She is strong on a lead but good off lead and really needs a home that enjoys walking because half an hour around the block is definitely not going to cut it for her. Bonnie is house trained and travels well in a car. She mixes well with other dogs and can happily muck in and play with even the most boisterous dogs in her foster home. Bonnie loves children but can be a bit exuberant for really young kids or those lacking in confidence around dogs.


Baloo is a 6-year-old medium sized black labrador cross. Baloo was rescued from a shelter in Romania and brought to the UK by another rescue. After a few weeks with them they felt they couldn't give him the socialisation he needed to progress him enough to be fit for adoption so asked us if we would help. As this is the kind of dog we love to take on of course we agreed. Baloo is a dear boy with a sensitive nature. He bonded with me very quickly and the key to him gaining confidence lay in his walks. Initially, he didn't want to go and jumped at every sound but now he follows me around the house until I take him and once out he has the time of his life. It's so wonderful to see the uptight dog that he can be at home relax into the playful, tail wagging chap he is when he's running the fields or the beach. He is still quite quiet at home and extremely calm and well behaved. On walks, he comes into his own and has a lovely time running and playing with his pals. Ideally, Baloo would find a home with one or two other confident dogs as he really does enjoy canine companionship. This quiet and thoughtful boy so needs someone who understands that life is still scary for him sometimes. He needs someone that can give him the one to one time that he cannot have here so that that the human contact is more regular throughout the day. He is still wary of my approach but once I have hold of him he enjoys a fuss and will sit on the sofa with me. I would dearly love to see this boy given the time and patience he needs to blossom into the dog that I see within him.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Royal Mail Deliveries Affected by Adverse Weather

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Royal Mail Deliveries Affected by Adverse Weather

Due to severe weather (lots of super Christmassy yet inconvenient snow in Birmingham!) some orders may experience delays as a Royal Mail and courier collection has been missed today (11-12-17) meaning that orders placed between 8th-11th December have not yet been collected for delivery.

We are looking into arranging an earlier collection for tomorrow, but as of yet we are not sure if this is possible yet. We are also not sure whether the usual collection tomorrow afternoon will take place as normal, so as yet we are unable to estimate how long the delay to delivery times will be.

We are working on getting all orders sent out as soon as possible and we will update all our customers as and when we have new information to give - please stay tuned to our Facebook page or check our blog for future updates tomorrow. If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to contact us by e-mailing and we will get back to you as soon as we can and do our best to keep you updated.

We apologise in advance if any inconvenience is caused by these delays - unfortunately this was beyond our control this time around...we haven't figured out how to control the weather just yet!

We thank all our customers for their patience and we hope to have all orders sent out as fast as possible! Stay safe if you're venturing out in the UK, and remember to wrap up warm!
