No, this little puppy wasn't born in a highlighter factory. In fact, there's nothing wrong with him physically, he's just unique in that he's, well, green.
If I were the owner, I'd take full advantage and pitch him to ad agencies. Imagine, the world's first green puppy would be the ultimate mascot for all things eco-friendly!
Unfortunately, they'd have to act fast. The Veterinarians that examined the New Orleans-born pup said he probably won't stay that colour. His lime green skin will turn into a normal brown or beige. Shame!
For those who want to know more, Anna Zorrilla who is with the Louisiana SPCA, offered the following explanation.
â€œSometimes, when a puppy is born, the amniotic fluid mixes with the placenta and dyes the coat of the puppy and it almost always happens to very light colored puppies,â€ she says. â€œThere are not health concerns.
â€œIt's really just a discoloration in the birthing process.â€
The Grinch should forget about Max, this little guy would be his ultimate canine companion!
