One dog mom gave her owner quite a shock after giving birth to five puppies.
However, the surprise wasn’t the number of puppies: it was the fact that Milly, a chocolate Lab, had puppies of different colors… including one puppy that was green at birth!
Milly had four males and one female. When her owner, Elaine Cooper, looked at the female puppy, she noticed that she was green. Elaine gave the green puppy a fitting name: Princess Fiona, from the Shrek movie franchise. At first, they thought she was a black Lab, but then they realized her fur had a green tint.
The emerald hue is caused by overexposure to a substance called biliverdin, which can be found in the placenta. This is apparently very rare in dogs and has only been reported two other times.
If you were so surprised to see this green puppy, then you will also be blown away by this fluffy, white dog that had a litter of all-black puppies. Her owner was so shocked!
Please SHARE this green little puppy with all of your friends and family who will never believe this!
