Maria London knew she had to have Milkshake the moment she noticed him. He was the only pink pug in the litter. That look comes from a lack of pigmentation that he inherited from an albino pug in his family.

Albinism can often come with a few health problems like a sensitivity to light and even blindness, but luckly, this young pup is completely healthy! That doesn’t stop him mom from spoiling him with doggie spa dates and the occasional brunch.
