Arrival Story:
Depp was turned into the shelter on Valentine's Day 2008. His original name was "Dip" but I think someone either didn't like that or misunderstood the name and he became "Depp" instead. The reason he is in foster care is because, after 4 long months at the shelter, no one wanted to adopt the poor guy. Some people thought it was time to put him down, but two people who were part of his fan club fought to keep him alive. I was originally going to foster him along with another dog that had been there for forever (she looked just like him, too) but she finally got adopted. Fancy is another one of my fosters (she is just 4 months old) and she adores him and wants to play with him 24/7!!!

Bio:
Depp is crate trained, LOVES toys and loves to play ball, he likes the kiddie pool, he is fantastic with other dogs. His only bad habits are that he jumps up (on people, on counters, tables, whatever) with his front paws. He's a bit mouthy so his mouth is on your hands all the time, and he loves toys so much he's not sure if he wants to share them with the other dogs, but Fancy's already working with him on that. ;) Oh, Depp also knows how to "sit" on verbal cue and can "down" immediately with a visual cue. He's pretty awesome. :D

Forums Motto:
Victim of BBD syndrome

BBD??:
What is BBD syndrome, you ask? "BBD" stands for "Big Black Dog" and it's a phenomenon found throughout the country. For some reason, BBDs are overlooked more often than other dogs and are therefore usually the last to be adopted. I know this holds true at my shelter. Many shelters have poor lighting and the dark-coated dogs do not "pop" and catch any interest. BBD's also may look "scary" to someone who doesn't know any better. There's a lot of superstition in this country surrounding "dark" animals, such as a black cat. The spooky dog in a horror film is always black, am I right? People can usually get over the fact that a dog has a black coat if the dog is small and otherwise adorable, but forget it if the dog is large and plain. The sad fact is that because of BBD syndrome, in many kill shelters across the country these dogs are less likely to be put up for adoption than their more eye-catching counterparts. "Why waste the kennel space" is the usual thought process. Look closely at dogs in shelters that are big and black or otherwise plain. They will be very grateful to finally be noticed.
