Dr. Seuss would have loved it.

Two green puppies were born on June 3 in Spain, to two hunting dog breeders who could hardly contain their shock, the English publication The Local reported.

“I couldn’t believe it when I first saw them,” said owner Aida Vallelado Molina. “I thought the puppies were dirty and tried to clean them, but the color wouldn’t come off.”

The runts of the litter, as it turned out, had ingested a substance called biliverdin from the mother’s placenta, which caused the skin to turn green, according to The Local.

One of the two weak puppies soon died, but the second is expected to survive. Both are being studied by local veterinarian, Dr. Daniel Valverde, who is conducting bacteriological and virological tests because the occurrence is so rare.

The fur, The Local reported, has already begun to fade, which is consistent with the one other known case. That took place in England in 2012, and after ten days, the dog regained its natural color.
