Frenchie - [albino pekingese] (by dmott9)
The majority of Pekingese are gold, red or sable. Light gold, cream, black, white, sables, black and tan and occasionally ‘blue’ or slate gray have appeared in the breed. The latter often has poor pigment and light eyes. Albino Pekingese (white with pink eyes) should be bred cautiously due to health problems that have been associated with albinism.
*I believe “Albino” pekingese are actually leucistic or dilute as are white dobermans and white german shepherds. A majority appear to have blue or grey eyes.
