May I help you?

An albino doberman - surrendered at the shelter decided to help out with adoptions...


On a more serious note, please note a comment from Wakethesun:

"this poor pup was the result of a backyard breeder trying to make some quick money. All albino dobermans can trace their genes back to one dog, who herself was the product of a backyard breeding. Since then people have continued to exploit them, selling them as a rare color and insisting they're white, not albino to avoid the health connotations that come with albinism. The gene for albinism isn't even found in properly bred show/working dobies. They have a plethora of health problems that are unavoidable."
