There’s nothing more sporty, sleek, or chic than a jet-black pooch. From the athletic and beloved Black Lab to the dainty and spunky Scottish Terrier, black dogs come in all shapes and sizes but are bound by their beautiful dark coats.

Whether you’ve got a Batman, a Coffee Bean, or a Coco, your pitch black pooch deserves a name to live up to his appearance!

Black Dog Breeds (To Name a Few)

  • Black Lab: One of America’s favorite dogs, the Black Lab is known for being athletic and agile, and loving and kind-hearted at the same time. They tend to make excellent family dogs—they are a popular choice among families in the U.S.
  • Newfoundland: The phrase Gentle Giant seems to perfectly describe the handsome and sizeable Newfoundland Dog. Lewis and Clark famously brought a Newfoundland with them on their journey across the Louisiana Purchase.
  • Scottish Terrier: The vivacious Scottish Terrier is one of the most recognizable members from the Terrier group.

My previous service animal was mostly jet black except for her chest which was a large white diamond.
Layla in Arabic means Dark Beauty and she was dark & beautiful!! Extremely intelligent as she was a Border Collie/Jack Russell mix.
