If you’ve been on the internet, chances are you’ve seen a video about those small crusty white dog You know, those small, fluffy, white, mutts that are often found in rich families or at your grandparents’ house. The internet has been calling them ugly, shameful, and worse. This buzz started on Twitter and TikTok, with users poking fun at these little dogs who are described as unkempt, having crusty eyes, and looking like they have goop or red crust around their eyes. This is a very uncalled for and cruel thing to do, especially since these are the same dogs that are loving and affectionate to their owners.
These dogs are typically referred to as “crusty white dogs” because their tears can stain their fur. This happens when the iron-rich porphyrin molecules in the dog’s tears come into contact with oxygen and dry, leaving a rusty color on the coat. The best way to avoid this is to wipe your dog’s eyes regularly and keep their coat clean of stains and debris.
Despite this negative connotation, these puppies are still very cute and loving. They make great companions for people of all ages and get along well with other animals. They are intelligent, and their playful nature makes them very lovable. However, this is a breed that requires plenty of exercise and training to maintain their physical and mental health. They are also moderate shedders, so it is important to brush their coat at least twice a week. These dogs should also be taken to the vet for regular checkups, so they can receive treatment if necessary.
