Big Black Dog Syndrome Bibliography

Feel free to peruse the extensive bibliography (list of academic resources) on Big Black Dog Syndrome that I compiled in the process of researching the Syndrome for my article, "The Plight of 'Big Black Dogs' in American Animal Shelters: Color-Based Canine Discrimination."  The bibliography is written in the American Anthropological Association format.

 

As of right now, the bibliography contains the sources I used for my article, but will grow to contain even more references and serve as the seminal resource for research on Big Black Dog Syndrome.  If there is a source that you think should be included in this bibliography, please leave the citation in the comments section at the bottom of the page, by email at info@blackdogresearch.com, or through the contact information form.
