A black dog that has pointy ears tends to have a majestic, assertive and elegant look. In this article, we shall be looking at some breeds within which you can find black dogs with pointy ears. We shall also address the question on how to acquire a black dog that has pointy ears.
A black dog with pointy ears typically has a bold, strong and graceful aura about it. Breeds within which you may find black dogs with pointy ears include Doberman Pinscher, Chow Chow and Chihuahua. Others would include the Black German Shepherd and the Siberian Husky.
The specific breed from which one ultimately selects a black pointy eared dog depends on several factors.
For one, it depends on the size of dog one prefers. So it is possible to find big dogs with pointy ears. Just as it is possible to find a small dog with pointy ears.
Thus if one prefers a large black dog with pointy ears, there are certain breeds to consider. And if one prefers a small black dog with pointy ears, there are other breeds to consider.
The purpose for which one wants the dog is also a consideration. Suppose one wants a black guard dog with pointy ears. In that case, the ideal breeds would be different from those for a person who wants, say, a companion black dog with pointed ears.
There is also the aspect of color purity. One may prefer an all black dog with pointy ears. In this case, the ideal breeds would be different from those for one who prefers a brown and black dog with pointy ears or a black and white dog with pointy ears.
How Exactly Does A Black Dog With Pointy Ears Look?
From the black dog with pointy ears name, it is easy to get a pretty good idea of how exactly the dog looks. So this is a dog that has two defining features.
The first defining feature is black coat color.
And the second defining feature is the presence of pointy ears.
Thus a dog with a black coat and ears that are triangular and upright is what we refer to as a ‘black pointy eared dog’.
Sometimes, it may turn out to be a black dog with ears that are pointy, and eyes that are brown. Or it may turn out to be a black dog with pointy ears and blue eyes.
With regard to size, it may be a large black dog with pointy ears. Or it may actually be a rather little black dog with pointy ears.
It could be a tall skinny black dog with pointy ears or a short chubby dog that has pointy ears.
There are cases in which you find a scary black dog with pointy ears — or a non-threatening looking black dog that has pointy ears.
In some instances, it turns out to be a solid black dog pointy ears. Or it may turn out to be a black and brown dog with pointy ears.
If it isn’t solid black, it may also be a black and orange dog with pointy ears. Or it may be a black and gold dog with pointy ears.
A black and tan dog with pointy ears may also be found, in some instances.
As for body covering, the dog may be a black fluffy dog with pointy ears. Or it may be a black short haired dog with pointy ears.
Which Breeds Have Black Dogs With Pointy Ears?
There are several breeds in which it is possible to find black dogs that have pointy ears.
An example of a black dog with pointy ears breed is Doberman Pinscher. Some people actually imagine that this is the only dog breed in which there are black dogs with pointy ears.
If you ask some people what are the dogs called with pointy ears and black coats, they will blurt out ‘Doberman Pinscher’. This is because many have come to know that as the only breed with black dogs that have pointy ears.
In actual fact though, there are several other small and big black dog breeds with pointy ears.
The other black pointy eared dog breeds include Chow Chow, Chihuahua, German Shepherd and Siberian Husky. These are just a selection from the numerous dog breeds in which you can find black dogs with pointy ears.
We will now proceed to examine each of our selected black pointy ears dog breeds in turn.
If you want a remarkably big black dog with pointy ears, then the Doberman Pinscher may be a good choice.
Indeed, for most people, the first big black dog with pointy ears name that comes to mind is Doberman Pinscher.
This is a very impressive-looking dog. It is also a fierce-looking (but still very loyal) dog. If you want a dog with which to scare intruders, then the Doberman Pinscher may be a good choice.
One good thing you will like about the Doberman Pinscher is that its grooming needs are quite modest. This is due to the nature of its coat, which doesn’t require too much grooming.
But the aspect of Doberman Pinscher ownership you are likely to find challenging is that of training. Being such a big dog, it requires very thorough training, and from a tender age.
You also need to know that a dog as big as the Doberman Pinscher requires super-size accommodation. And it may need substantially more food than a smaller dog.
But on the upside, with a Doberman Pinscher in your yard, very few intruders will dare to mess around.
This is also the sort of dog you can proudly show off to your visitors. They are sure to be awed by its size and elegant appearance at all times.
If you prefer a medium size (fluffy) black pointy eared dog, then you may find it in Chow Chow.
This is also an exotic-looking dog, which one can proudly show off to all visitors that come along.
To be sure, black is only one of the several beautiful colors that Chow Chows come in. But the fact remains that if you search hard enough, you can eventually lay your hands on a black Chow Chow.
Then again, whereas the ears on the Chow Chow are certainly pointy, they are not always very prominent. They are modest, and the dog’s fluffy coat tends to hide them.
Thus if your preference was for a black dog with prominent pointy ears, the Chow Chow may not work well.
But if you don’t mind the pointy ears being somewhat hidden, then the Chow Chow can be good.
It helps that the Chow Chow is not too energetic, and won’t drain you with its exercise requirements.
However, the aspect that the Chow Chow may drain you in is with regard to its grooming requirements. This is a fluffy dog. And as with all fluffy dogs with lots of hair/fur, its grooming needs can be quite extensive.
Not all people want big black dogs that have pointy ears. Sometimes, one just wants a cute small black dog with pointy ears. And that can easily be found in a Chihuahua.
In this sort of small black dog pointy ears just add to the cuteness package.
The good thing about the Chihuahua is that it can live well, even in a relatively small space. After all, this is one of the so-called toy dogs.
It doesn’t take too much food to satisfy a Chihuahua’s needs too. Indeed, what some of the big black dogs with pointy ears would eat in a single day may be enough to sustain a Chihuahua for almost a week!
The Chihuahua’s exercise needs are also not too heavy. But you still need to walk/exercise it: always keeping in mind that this is a dog, not a cat!
Notwithstanding its small size, the Chihuahua has a larger-than-life ego. This is something you need to beware of. You therefore have to devote lots of time and energy to training/socializing your Chihuahua. Only then may you coexist with it.
Further, you need to know that the Chihuahua is the sort of dog that may show bad separation anxiety. Chihuahua separation anxiety bouts can be really nasty.
Thus the Chihuahua is only ideal if you are the sort of person who is ‘around’ most of the time.
A good number of German Shepherds are black in color.
Thus in your search for a huge black dog with pointy ears, you may end up settling for German Shepherd.
This is a rather assertive black big dog with pointy ears. It is the sort of dog that can handle guard duties quite well.
It is tall, but also usually very muscular. So it is not one of those tall skinny dogs with pointy ears. Yes, it is tall, but certainly not skinny – unless it has health issues or malnourishment.
What you may find tiring about the German Shepherd is its need for intense exercise.
And what you may find relieving about the German Shepherd is its typically lower grooming needs.
The Siberian Husky is one of those dogs in which the pointy ears are very prominent. They stand upright, pointy – almost like horns!
The Siberian Husky also tends to be quite fluffy. Thus for those in search of fluffy black dogs with pointy ears, Siberian Huskies can be quite good.
In most other fluffy dogs that have pointy ears, the pointy ears tend to be hidden by the thick fur. But in the Siberian Husky, the pointy ears are too prominent to be obscured by fur.
There are two aspects of Siberian Husky ownership that you may find challenging.
The first of those is the grooming aspect, which is a direct consequence of these dogs’ fluffy nature.
And the second challenging aspect of Siberian Husky ownership is that of meeting its exercise requirements. If ever there were high energy dogs, requiring lots of exercise, it is the Siberian Huskies.
Thus the moment you acquire a Siberian Husky, you need to set aside huge blocks of time for its exercise.
The return you get though is in the form of a black cuddly, elegant dog, with very prominent pointy ears and pleasant personalities.
How To Acquire A Black Dog With Pointy Ears?
You can get in touch with a commercial dog breeder, and have them supply you with the black pointy-eared dogs.
Some commercial breeders breed these dogs on an industrial scale. They can therefore supply you with as many black pointy ear dogs as you need.
Sometimes, even if you make a 10 black dog with pointy ears order, you will find a commercial breeder who can fill it.
Some breeders specialize in some breeds though. You may therefore need to search a bit, before finding a breeder with the specific breed you need.
Other than buying from commercial breeders, the only other viable way to acquire black dogs with pointy ears is by adopting – say, from the rescue shelters for dogs.
Final Verdict – Black Dog With Pointy Ears
There are certain dogs whose coats are black in color, and which also happen to have pointy ears.
