Albino Pugs

I've always been fascinated by albinos and ever since I saw a picture of an albino pug I've wanted one. Correction, I would like a pug with "leucism." There's actually a difference. Albinos have absolutely no pigment at all, resulting in the characteristic red eyes. Animals like white tigers are not albino at all, but actually have leucism. Leucism is a reduction of pigment, not a complete lack, and thus the animals have blue eyes, not red. Well, there's your fun fact for the day!
