We love pups of all colors, sizes, breeds. But, could there be a specific shade that is the most popular of them all?


According to The Daily Mail, Red or auburn haired pups see the quickest rate of adoption.



Giles Webber, Dogs Trust Operations Director, claims that red haired dogs find homes “3 days quicker than average.”


Why is this color so popular? Is it because of its rarity? Does it make pups more noticeable?


While some rescues and shelters aren’t sure, they’re using the color of the moment to help dogs find forever homes.


Dogs Trust is making a concerted effort to find home for dogs of the red persuasion and wants their adoption events to coincide with National Redhead Day. Pawhaps, it would be a good idea for shelters in the States to follow suit to raise more adoption awareness!
