The Black Dog walking group is on the move - to Lake Harriet. Thank you to Linden Hills Dunn Brothers owners Carrie and Brian Ehlers for welcoming our group to the Dunn Brothers patio where we can have a few beverages and chill with the doggies after the walk. Detials are below - SEE YOU SUNDAY!
Black Dog Walking Group - Lake Harriet. Help us raise awareness about Black Dog Syndrome
Do you have a black dog? Are you ready to get out and walk now that it's finally summer? We meet at Lake Harriet to walk once a week for fun, exercise and to raise awareness about Black Dog Syndrome. For more information about why we're focusing on black dogs in particular go to our website, www.startseeingblackdogs.com.
WHO: Anyone with one or more black dogs. Foster dogs are encouraged to join us. This is great exposure for dogs awaiting adoption.
WHAT: A casual walk with our black dogs around Lake Harriet, or as far as you want to go. Those who want can return to the Linden Hills Dunn Brothers patio for social time after the walk. Owners Carrie and Brian Ehlers are dog lovers and welcome our group.
WHERE: Meet in front of the Linden Hills Dunn Brothers Coffee, and we’ll walk to the lake from there. 2814 West 43rd Street, Linden Hills, 55410, (612) 925-5669. PLEASE PARK AROUND THE CORNER FROM DUNN BROTHERS SO WE DON'T MONOPOLIZE THE PARKING WHILE WE GO ON OUR WALK. THEIR PARKING LOT IS NOT LARGE :) For a map and directions go to:

WHEN: This Sunday July 13th, 10:30 a.m.
WHY: Black dogs are often the last to be adopted and are euthanised in much larger numbers than other dogs. They are frequently overlooked because potential adopters may consider them too "plain," think that they appear more menacing, or they simply may not see them because their darker color makes them disappear in their kennels. Those involved in animal rescue refer to this as “Black Dog Syndrome.” We want black dogs to become more visible and a little black dog herd marching around the lake is a step in the right direction.
Our new website www.startseeingblackdogs.com provides free marketing and PR resources to help rescue groups and animal shelters increase the number of black dog adoptions.
