Molina, who breeds hunting dogs with her father Manuel Vallelado, said: "I thought the puppies were maybe dirty somehow and I tried to clean them, but the colour wouldn't come off and then I realised it was the colour of their fur."

The cause for the colouring has been given as exposure to a substance called biliverdin, which can be found in the placenta.
