OK, if you can look this adorable Corgi puppy without squealing at the cuteness, you might not be human. And if you can get past the fluffy little face, you’ll notice that the little guy has two different-colored eyes. When we come across dogs with different-colored eyes in real life, it usually stops us dead in our tracks because they are always so striking.
The technical term for two different color eyes is heterochromia, and it can occur in humans too (Kate Bosworth and Mila Kunis were blessed with two gorgeous different-colored eyes). The term can refer to dogs with multiple colors in one eye or two eyes of very different colors. The condition is generally harmless and doesn’t result in any loss of vision.
Heterochromia is often thought to be genetic, but can also be the result of injury. Though it can occur in any breed (as evidenced by the corgi), it’s most common in great Danes, huskies, Dalmatians and malamutes.
