Blue Dogs

Blue dogs are rare, something you are not likely to come across as you go out for a jog in the morning. But they exist and are more gorgeous than you might expect.

A dog’s ‘blue’ coat is not comparable to the typical blue color. It is more silver-gray with a distinct cool bluish sheen. It happens due to recessive gene mutations that cause the black pigmentation of the coat to dilute and appear silvery-gray or blue. The same gene mutations also cause the dog’s nose to turn bluish.
