Default Eyes

Talon has very strange eyes, I've never really seen this before. Originally we thought his eyes where green, but when I look closer I realize they aren't green at all. They are a light amber/brown color around the outside and inside is blue/grey. That can't be good right?

I'm not sure if this is cause for concern or not, eye sight seems normal, but brown and blue don't usually go together as far as I've ever seen.

Here I have pics:

No cause for concern... it's eye colour. My eyes are like that.

I don't know for sure if it's a cause for concern, but I've seen quite a few APBT/mixes to have eyes that color, and as far as I know, none of them had vision problems.

My eyes are the opposite - green on the outside with a very distinct brown ring around the iris. If you haven't seen any signs of vision issues, I wouldn't stress about it much. I might ask the vet the next time I was there, but I don't think I'd be panicking.

I also think they look really pretty

It could be that his eyes are that colour (and that's normal) or given his age, his eyes might just be changing to their true colour. Finn was green-eyed as a pup and became intense amber.

I was going to say I bet his eyes turn amber.

Liver pigmented dogs tend to have greenish eyes as puppies, and they'll gradually turn some shade of amber. The blue/green/gray ring will go away.

Blaze was blue-eye as a pup and changed to amber.
