A PUPPY in Sardinia has been born with green fur whilst all the other dogs as part of the five-dog litter were born with white fur!
Dog loving Italian farmer Cristian Mallocci, who has eight-dogs watched on amazed as Spelacchia gave birth to a green-furred puppy, who was instantly named Pistachio!
Green fur on a dog is obviously very rare and is thought to happen when pale coloured puppies have contact in their mother’s womb with a green pigment called biliverdin.
Interestingly, it is the same pigment that causes the green colour in bruises.
However, the colour will not last forever as it will fade day-by-day as Mallocci looks to train the young pup up to look after the sheep with his mother.
