    one of the best singles ads ...

    This has to be one of the best singles ads ever printed. It is reported to have been listed in the Atlanta Journal.

    Love the response this ad got!!


    SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I'm a very good girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me.... Call (404) 555-5555 and ask for Annie, I'll be waiting.....

    Aww what a great way to get the dog adopted .. Most people will not have a black dog or black cat due to the stigma attached to them.

    Cute ad campaign, but it makes me wonder ultimately how successful it was. Were their adoption numbers boosted at all by the end of the campaign?

    Black dogs are often left unadpoted at the shelter or pound. We got a "used" black Lab mix from some people at our church who were traveling a lot and finding it difficult to take care of Missy. She had originally been dumped at the pound years ago, expecting a litter of pups. We've had her now for 6 years, and at 16 she's showing her age and slowing down. But her sweet nature remains the same. We'd definitely consider another black Lab in the future.

    My big black pit/lab (?) mix is dumber than dirt but so incredibly loving! Black dogs need homes too!

    I know, isn't that so sad?? DH & I have 3 dogs, one of which is a black lab mix who is getting on in years. When she passes on (hopefully not for several more years) we intend to specifically adopt another big black dog. I think it is so silly and sad that people don't like black-furred animals. Our girl is a sweetheart. A big, clumsy, goofy sweetheart.

    my favorite cat EVER was all black - there was no one quite like him. He even won over my DH, who was not a pet person.

    That is so sad!! I have had many black pets and nothing untoward has happened.
