Chinchilla Pug

Leucism occurs because of lessened or reduced pigmentation resulting in a pale coloration or a patched pattern throughout the body. Chinchilla coloration in pugs is an outcome of leucism brought about by the recessive gene. For instance, the chinchilla coloration blends with white in black leucistic pugs, leading to a pale body coat.
