While a very striking looking dog, albinism is a mutant gene that causes a multitude of health issues, including, but not limited to, sensitivity to light, vision problems due to an abnormality of the retinas, skin lesions and cancers, and sun burn. There is also concern over temperament, as these dogs have been inbred solely for colour, with concerns ranging from fear biting to complete aggression and a general instability.
The first recorded albino doberman was born in 1976, and heavily inbred from thereafter to reproduce more dogs with the mutation.
