Dog breeds with blue eyes. They will captivate you!

Dog breeds with blue eyes. They will captivate you!

Although blue is the coldest of the colors, it does thrill. I do not know a person who would pass indifferently by a dog staring at her with blue eyes. Is it because of the charm? Probably also, but blue dog eyes, often looking as if someone had put glass balls in the eye sockets, can hypnotize. My Weimaraner was a beloved edelweiss with amber eyes, but I still remember this magical look from the period of puppyhood, when his eyes were the color of the blue sky. Some dog breeds have blue eyes because of the duplication of the gene responsible for the development of vision and hearing by scientists. And in this group are weimar and husky.

But most blue-eyed dogs are mostly marbled, for which the merle gene is responsible. It causes a random brightening of the basic coat, i.e. black or chocolate. Interestingly, there are no two the same marbles (in addition, this variety also applies to the eyes), because for each of them the distribution of patches is unique. If someone took a brush and splashed paint with a dog, then they could create another marbled dog with such eyes: two blue, one blue and the other brown, half blue, mottled, spotted, brown. In addition to the breeds described next, such eyes may have marbled Scottish Sheepdogs, long-haired and short-haired dachshunds or German Great Dane. If there are lovers of blue-eyed beauties here, I invite them to a nearby hostel. There also such animals are waiting for home. And although the blue eyes are cold as ice, the hearts of these quadrupeds beat the hottest.
