A group of seven stray blue-haired dogs was found near an old glass factory in Dzerzhinsk, an industrial city in Russia.
The dogs were transported to the vet on the 13th and samples of blood and excrement were taken. In spite of everything, they have not yet been able to identify exactly what will be the source of the color change.

It is believed they were exposed to chemicals used to make plexiglass, but doctors say they appear in good health. They plan to release them, as no one has asked to adopt them. pic.twitter.com/hkGsDJe50H

However, it is believed that the origin of the color change is a chemical substance such as copper sulphate, a substance that was found in the warehouses of the factory where the dogs will have walked.
According to the BBC, dogs are healthy and are eating normally, despite concerns that the substance may have an impact on animal health.
The animals went viral after images of the pack were shared on the VK website, a Russian platform similar to Facebook.

The situation brought up again the debate about the risk of chemical pollution that many of the old factories of the former Soviet Union present, after decades of abandonment.
