London, August 31 (ANI): A dog owner has at least eight reasons to smile after her white pedigree poodle delivered eight black pups near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, UK.
Owner Carol Marsden helped Sukanto My Fair Lady give birth to four girls and four boys at her home.
Black pedigree poodle Alfie, whose full name is Kertellas, is said to the proud father of the litter.
"Black is the dominant gene in poodles so this is not unusual but the exact outcome would depend on the genetic history of the father and the mother," the Telegraph quoted Beverly Cuddy, editor of Dogs Today, as saying.
Carol has named the male puppies Shadow, Victor, Leo and Duke and the girls Lucy, Belle, Duchess and Tess. (ANI)
