Last week in North Carolina, Shana Stamey's German Shepherd, Gypsy, gave birth to a litter of eight puppies.
One of them had lime-green fur, so, naturally, she named him Hulk. Puppies coming out with candy-colored fur isn't as uncommon as one might think.
“The sack that they're in when they're in their mom, there can be meconium in there and that tends to stain them,” Junaluska Animal Hospital veterinarian technician Suzanne Cianciulli tells WLOS-TV.
By the following week, Hulk's fur had yellowed as it worked its way to white, leading to a new nickname: Pikachu.
