Black Dogs Are Beautiful, Too!

That’s exactly what photographer Fred Levy is trying to convey in his new project, the Black Dogs Project. It’s a photo series that shows black dogs against a dark background and tells the story of the difficulty black dogs face when waiting to be adopted.

According to the statement on the project website, “This photo series started after a conversation about how black dogs have a harder time getting adopted then other dogs. I decided to start a photo series photographing black dogs on a black background in my studio. Using social media, I’ve been recruiting local dog owners who have black dogs to photograph. It’s an amazing journey that will hopefully become a book.”

Meet Buddy!

Lance Bass (who is in a five-way tie for our all-time favorite N’Sync-er) is on a mission to find an adorable one-eyed puppy a home.

He posted the pic on his Instagram account with the message: Meet Buddy our newest Lucky Puppy! We have tons of fun presents for whoever finds a great home for him! for info ( yes he has one eye! So cool!)

Yep, we’d say that’s one lucky puppy!
