I've owned a multitude of black dogs and the color of the dog has absolutely NOTHING to do with the personality, etc. I love all dogs, but for some unknown reason I've just always ended up with black dogs. Mine have always been very intelligent, loving, gentle... I feel very sorry for the dogs that are bypassed because of being black, but I feel sorrier for the people doing the bypassing... they just don't know what they're missing!!

I have a big black dog, Lab/pit mix. Her temperment is such that she is more likely to get bitten than to bite but people have an image in their mind about her and nothing I do or say can persuade them otherwise.

I say good! whenever my large dog makes some hood monkey get out of my way and cross the street is a good thing! People shouldn't be afraid of big black dogs, they should be afraid of big black people! they're the ones who are going to rape you or kill you, not the dogs.

color has nothing to do with it.

I personally have a thing for any and all black animals -- horses, cats, dogs. I just seem to like the black ones the best.

People should be afraid of people like you with a pea for a brain who think so small.

We have a Rottweiller who is a gentle gaint. He is wonderful with our grandchildren and we trust him 100% with them. When I walk him, most people come up and want to pet him. The thing that I have found to be true is that he has no idea he is a Rottweiller, he thinks he is just a family dog with a family that loves him so much. It is ususlly the owner that makes these dogs mean and that is so sad.

I couldn't agree more!!!!! Racist Idiot!!!

I know several large & small black dogs and most are "Gentle Giants", the little ones can be annoying but that goes for a lot of small dogs.(Really I like small dogs too).

The dog doesn't know it's supposed to be mean (by reputation, etc.), they respond to the way they have been treated and taught.

Responsible Dog "owners" (I'm not sure who owns who), know the difference.
