Italy: A rare green puppy named 'Pistachio' born, how did it happen
A rare green puppy has been born in Italy and has been named Pistachio, owing to his green fur. The puppy was part of a five-dog litter born at the farm on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Pistachio's brothers and sisters all had white fur, the same colour as their mother. A dog born with green fur is very rare. It is believed to be a result of the puppy making contact with a green pigment called biliverdin while in the womb.
