    Default White eyelashes

    Is there a direct correlation when having white eyelashes to any health risk.. ie inverted eye lashes, deafness (Po is not deaf from what I can tell), sun burning cornea?

    I wouldn't think there would be really any correlation..she is a white dog. But then again, I haven't looked that closely at dog's eyelashes.

    I know people with white eyelashes generally have albinism. People with albinism obviously are prone to sun burning..I'm not sure about deafness or blindness, but I don't think so.

    From what I can tell, Po should be fine. She has black pigment and everything. If she didn't have the black pigment I may be a bit concerned about possible deafness but honestly I highly doubt it.

    I agree with what @laurendoodler says. If Po had any other sign I would worry. But for you, Po is a very beautiful bully!!!


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    Not that I am aware of. My healthiest bully who never even sneezes is all white. I believe the only concern is if both parents are solid white with no other pigment. Not even freckles.

    Jack our other pup has one eye that all white lashes and he has very pink skin. I keep sunscreen on him around his eye if he's out in the sun for awhile. Other than the recent bone growth issue he has (large breed dog) he doesn't have any other health issues.

    Here's a good picture that shows how pink his face gets when he's been in the sun for just a bit. It's another reason I got him Doggles.
