A dog breeder in Alhambra, Calif., is mystified after his golden retriever gave birth to a green puppy, according to a Local 6 News report.
The green puppy, named Wasabi, was one of four puppies born five days ago.
The dog is healthy and green, according to the report.
Local 6 News showed video of the puppy rolling around with its normal-looking newborn brothers and sisters.
Skeptics said the dog had to be dyed green but the owner said the puppy was born green.
Veterinarians said it is possible for a newborn puppy's fur to be green because the placenta, which is green, rubs off at birth.
