Name Ideas for Odd-Eyed Dogs With Heterochromia

Does your dog have one blue eye and one brown eye? One green eye and one golden eye? How special! The technical term for this feature is heterochromia: "hetero" means "different," and "chromia" means "colors." Melanin is what determines eye color, so it's possible that your dog has the following unique eye colors:

  • Complete heterochromia: One iris is a completely different color than the other.
  • Partial heterochromia: Partial heterochromia refers to an iris with two tones, while the other iris is the predominant color.
  • Central heterochromia: The color change is mostly around the center of one pupil and radiates outward.
