MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Are dogs actually born color blind?

It’s National Dog Day today! So today’s mystery has to do with our loveable furry friends. You’ve probably heard the myth that dogs are born colorblind and only see black and white. Is this true? Kind of, but not exactly.

Puppies are actually born deaf.  They can’t hear until they’re around three weeks old.  But dogs aren’t colorblind like in the traditional sense like a lot of people think.  They can actually see blue and yellow pretty well! So keep that in mind next time you’re buying their toys or anything they can see. Blue and yellow will be their favorites.
