    Having bred and exhibited Dalmatians for 40 years, prior to my involvement with pugs, the white color gene, is the contributing factor for the reason that 12% of all Dal puppies are born deaf, be they blue eyed or brown eyed. It has long been thought that the blue eye, is a contributor to deafness in Dals, but I have had many Dal puppies, that were bilateral hearing, (hearing in both ears) that had one or more blue eyes. However, that being said, I have also had Dal puppies that have had unilateral hearing, (one hearing ear, only) that have had one or more blue eyes. Strangely, the very few puppies that I did have, that were totally deaf, all had two brown eyes. Go figure.

    Well, that's definately not to say, that the blue eye doesn't have a connection with deafness, They seem to go hand in hand. However, there doesn't always have to be a blue eye involved, when a dog or cat who is predominately white, is also deaf. It is the gene for white, though, that is the problem.

    Apricot is a recognized colour too! It's just a warmer shade of fawn more golden.

    The pups are cute but I still think it's the mask that makes fawn pugs special.

    If black pugs fur turns white as they age do white pugs fur turn black with age? :)

    When I was a kid we had a pure white cat with a blue and a green eye.

    I have seen the chocolates! I think they are sooooo cuute! The albino pug I met was really sweet, his fur was sooo soft, and he had the best disposition.

    In Canada right now there is an CKC Champion pug with a brindle in her bloodline (who was eligible for registry by bloodline but not for show because of the colour). Genetic tests were done, said Champion is pure pug.

    Really??? WOW!

    We're assuming that the cause of the color is a recessive trait, but it could also be a mutation, which doesn't follow a Mendelian tenet scale. Interestingly enough, a recent research study found that blue eyes in humans is a mutation and everyone with blue eyes has a single ancestor. Mutations are great because they can cause just about any color, so anything is possible.
