It doesn’t sound real, but it’s really did happen to a lady in Scotland when her 3-year old Golden Retriever, Rio, gave birth to one green puppy.
The rare occurrence is called biliverdin and it has only happened three other times in the world.
The condition is caused by green bile pigment in the placenta that temporarily stains the puppy’s coat.
“he first pup was stuck, so myself and my daughter Claire managed to free him and pull him out safely. It was all hands on deck but then as the puppies started to arrive, we noticed that one of the puppies had green fur. We couldn’t believe it.”
She also continued with saying, “When we checked it out later we found out it is very unusual and to do with the placenta. The colour has faded quite a bit and will be gone soon, I’m told. We’ve named him Forest.”
Another couple earlier this year in Louise’s area also had a green puppy that was born to their chocolate Labrador.
