Dog With Bizarre Blue Eyes Finds New Owner After No One Wanted Her

A veterinary nurse has posted a video on TikTok showing how the unwanted dog she adopted is thriving.

Tess Nolan shared a clip of the sweet pup, a Boston terrier who has black and white fur and milky blue eyes, to her account @tessvetnurse on June 30.

The footage is overlaid with text that reads: "I adopted Daphne because no one wanted her.

"People thought she was weird because of her blue eyes. They though she would have health issues or she would go blind."

The video, which can be watched here, then cuts to Daphne lying on a bed, nuzzling the white sheets.

The overlaid text continues: "She is perfectly healthy and the sweetest dog I've ever met."

The heartwarming video has so far been watched more than 55,600 times and garnered about 8,300 likes.

Hundreds of viewers also left comments complimenting the dog and her caring owner, who lives on Australia's Gold Coast.

One TikTok user, Danielle Carbee, wrote: "Who wouldn't want a dog with blue eyes??"

Another person, user5251508692282, posted: "People are cold hearted to not give this cutie a chance just because of a disability or problem that they may have but guys you are awesome for giving her a home."

Juicy_jej typed: "Oh my god she's so pretty! Her eyes make her absolutely gorgoeus!!"

Sara revealed: "I have a Boston with blue eyes and people said this about him too. He's perfect as can be though."

Meg Bonnie Alfie gushed: "Her eyes are absolutely stunning!"

Sally Leonie Pastoret commented: "She is so beautiful. Oh my god these eyes."

The_doggie_days stated: "Something must be wrong with these people... Those gorgeous eyes are to die for."

Sky revealed: "I would do anything for a dog like her (except give you my puppy.)"

As for Daphne's blue eyes, the website PlayBarkRun.com states: "Blue eyes do not indicate that your dog will eventually go blind, deaf or have any other genetic defects.

"Variation in pigmentation in the iris can occur for varying reasons, and doesn't necessarily point to health concerns."

However, it added that: "The default eye color for dogs is brown. Genetics, pigmentation and health issues can all play a role in altering the color of their eyes."

Nolan, 26, works as a senior veterinary nurse and practice manager at the Point Veterinary Surgery in Paradise Point.

She uses her TikTok platform, where she has more than 5.5 million likes and 179,200 followers, to share insights into her duties, as well as footage of the adorable animals she cares for.

Newsweek has contacted Nolan for comment.
