A North Carolina family was surprised when their dog Gypsy, a white German Shepherd, gave birth to a lime green puppy. The family has now reportedly decided to name the puppy after the famous Marvel character Hulk given its colour, and reportedly its temperament.

According to a Huffpost report, the dog delivered 8 healthy puppies but its owners freaked out when they saw the green pup. Shana Stamey said she then reached out to a number of animal experts, who assured her that it was just staining from birth fluids, and it was in no danger.

Suzanne Cianciulli, the manager of Junaluska Animal Hospital in Waynesville, told a local news agency said the white dog’s fur was possibly stained during pregnancy. She also said with regular licks from its mother and baths, the yellow hue is expected to fade on its own.
