I joined BC boards just recently.
I got a rescue BC a few months ago- we are having a blast!
This is my 1st BC, I had a Siberian Husky for 15 years before.
I live in the NW, which isn't the hottest part of the world, but I take Isabel with me on long treks in the mountains. She has acclimated to this well. Loves the snow.
Now that it is summer, I wonder about how she will be. This is my 1st black coated dog & her coat feels warm to the touch when it's sunny even on cool days.
My husky's coat insulated against heat as well as cold & didn't get overheated easily.
Do black dogs overheat more easily/quickly?
Isabel doesn't like water, won't get in, or swim.
I always carry water for her, & watch for signs such as red gums, excessive panting, curled tongue, etc.
She does seek out shade frequently. (smart)
