Her eyes were wet when she inquired about the dog from the animal shelter’s staff. The staff told her that nobody wants to adopt a black dog. From here Colleen Paige got to know the bizarre phenomenon about black dogs.

Colleen Paige adopted the dog and gave the name “Sailor”. She looked after the Sailor and provided the best available medical treatment. She also provided the best food, the best living environment, and all other needs. After a complete year, the dog recovered from such horrible conditions.
