Jacqueline Arguello’s two white-furred dogs recently welcomed a surprising litter of adorable black puppies, prompting some playful speculation about canine fidelity.
“When I saw the first black puppy being born, I couldn’t help but find it amusing,” shared Arguello, based in Texas, with BuzzFeed. “And then the next one was black, and the next, and the next!”
Despite Arguello’s belief that her poodle was the only male in contact with her female canine, Mocca, the unexpected color of the puppies sparked family banter about potential secret rendezvous. While the humor suggests an amusing scenario, genetics may provide a straightforward explanation – two white canines can produce black puppies if they both carry the dominant “black” gene. It’s not uncommon for colors from previous generations to resurface in a puppy’s appearance.
Nevertheless, Arguello embraces the unexpected twist with laughter, expressing joy over the arrival of beautiful and healthy pups. She humorously added, “Eventually, we’ll see if they resemble their dad,” hinting at the ongoing playful speculation within the family.
