Milkshake The Rare Pink Pug Is Bringing All The Admirers To The Yard

Amy Pilkington 1 Apr 2020

I've seen a lot of unique animals in my job as a purveyor of cute things, but I can safely say that before today I had never heard of a pink pug.

But now I have, and I must say that Milkshake is quite the adorable doggo!

Yes, Milkshake is a pink pug.

At first glance, you may think he's albino, but though he has an albino ancestor he likely inherited his pale appearance from, he has none of the other markers of a true albino.

Aside from his pale, pinkish hue, there is nothing that makes Milkshake any different than other dogs of his breed.

Of course, pugs are a controversial breed and it's always important to research the practices of any breeder you may consider adopting a dog from.

But those puppies deserve loving homes just as much as any other, and Milkshake has found himself a wonderful human.

When Maria visited the breeder, she didn't even know pink pugs existed.

Milkshake was clearly a standout in his litter and she learned that the coloring is incredibly rare, with maybe about 100 known pink pugs in the world.

Of course, if you have a lovable pup these days, you have to get them an Instagram account.

Which Maria promptly did and @milkshakethepug now has almost 65,000 followers.

He's a happy, healthy boy who is really, really spoiled, and really, what dog could ask for more?
