HELENA, Ala. (WBRC) – A dog owner in Helena celebrates the unique addition of his French bulldog to his litter. The French bulldog gave birth to a green puppy!
Mark Ruffin is the dog owner and owner of Big Rajah Bullies. He says the mother was actually supposed to have a caesarean, but when he went to see her he found out she had two naturally occurring puppies and one of them was green.
At first he thought the pup was dirty, but after scrubbing and trying to clean the pup, he realized the staining was permanent.
According to CNN, this rare phenomenon is believed to occur when light-colored puppies come into contact with biliverdin, a green pigment found in bile.
