In segmental heterochromia, sometimes referred to as sectoral heterochromia, areas of the same iris contains two completely different colors.
Prince Caesar’s eyes look the same at a quick glance. However, when he is looking at you, you can catch what looks like a highlight on the lower part of one o his eye. When Dante and I were taken his pictures at 9 weeks, I kept catching what looked like the sky being reflected in his one eye. So we really took a good look and sure enough, he has blue in his brown. His right eye is brown. His left eye is brown with blue patch.
Prince Caesar’s eyes look like Monet’s water lilies at night. Within the dark pool the moon’s blue light flickers. It’s mysterious and alluring.
The only other eye coloring that is more rare in a Chinese Crested is the blue odd eyed and with mosaic.
I went to art school and have a degree in Fine Arts. I am very interested in colors and how it plays with shape and emotions. This is reflected in my love of Chinese Cresteds. As a devoted breeder, we have, as a family, chosen to add more coloring into our Chinese Cresteds. At first, it was the standard brown/black eyes. Then we had hazel, amber and green eyed chocolates. This lead to the blue eyed ones, single with brown (odd eyes) and double blue eyes. Then we had mosaic eyed puppies. First it was the blue odd eyed mosaic and now the mosaic. Who knows what other possible combination of eye coloring we may see.
We are the first and still the only Chinese Crested breeders who specialize in breeding the smallest sized puppies with the rarest of eye coloring for families who want the very best.
