This nature of Pistachio’s fur is explained as two possible reasons. It might be Biliverdin, a greenish pigment in wombs that might have infused with the fur somehow. Or it might have been meconium a sort of stool that an infant produces. There are no other scientific explanations other than these two aforementioned reasons.

Anyhow, this adorably unique puppy has managed to win the hearts of people all over the world as its photos were shared on the internet.
