According to The Moscow Times, the dogs may have been exposed to chemicals like plexiglass and hydrocyanic acid from the factory, which gave them a blue colour.

Andrey Mislivets, the bankruptcy manager of the plant, told Russian state-owned domestic news agency RIA Novosti that the dogs might have found leftover chemicals from the premises of the factory, which closed down due to financial constraints six years ago.

Nizhny Novgorod animal rights activists confirmed to the news agency that animals were not in danger as all seven of them were examined by veterinarians.

Two of the seven dogs have already found new owners, the news agency reported.
