Pugs are adorable. We normally associate them with the iconic brown and black dogs who walk with a waddle and are simply appealing. However, they can also be entirely black on occasion. However, there is one pug named Milkshake who has become a social media phenomenon due to his unusual coloration.
This pug is one of only a few hundred pink pugs in the world! Yes, he’s a one-of-a-kind, but his pinkish tint is one of our favorites.
Milkshake is only 17 months old, but he’s already making waves on the internet. We can see why, based on his baby blue eyes, which are contrasted by his soft pink fur.
Milkshake’s unusual coat color and eyes are due to a lack of melanin, which he most likely got from an albino pug in his lineage. His owner, Maria, 33, knew she had to accept him when she first saw him hanging around with his siblings.
When Milkshake was only ten weeks old, Maria brought him home with her. He was given his own Instagram account and quickly rose to the status of social media pet influencer, with over 60,000 followers!
“I had never even heard of pink pugs before,” Maria said in a remark, “but when I went to the breeder and saw Milkshake, I thought he was lovely, and knew I had to have him.” They’re extremely uncommon. I believe Milkshake was one of 30 in the world at the time, but there have been a few litters since then. There are just about 100 of them in the globe. He isn’t albino; he merely has the coloring that prevents him from losing his sight or hearing. He’s a healthy, happy boy.”
Maria has described her dog as “extremely spoilt,” as well as quirky, joyful, and engaged. Milkshake accompanies Maria to all of her appointments, including work meetings. He also receives weekly manicures and pedicures at the doggie spa, as well as being dressed up in lovely clothing for photoshoots. After a long day of work, he is rewarded with some chicken.
Milkshake is a competitor in dog shows and has his own trainer who is working with him to keep him in shape so he can work in the entertainment sector in the future with commercials and films.
“Milkshake is the most renowned pink pug on social media,” Maria continued. His Instagram account began off as a little bit of fun, but he quickly received a lot of favorable feedback. Many individuals messaged me expressing that viewing Milkshake brightened their day, which prompted me to upload more. His fan base only grew larger and larger.”
Some of Milkshake’s Instagram followers that Maria has met in person have been “star-struck” by meeting him, according to Maria. And it’s completely understandable; just take a look at him! How could such adorable face not make you feel like a celebrity?
