It’s hard to pull off head-to-toe white—especially after Labor Day. But albino pets do it with serious style.

Albinism is a genetic condition characterized by a lack of pigment, occurring in humans, animals, and even plants. While many albino pets are perfectly healthy—and all are perfectly adorable—light sensitivity is common, and some dogs experience hearing loss and vision problems. For this reason, it is not considered ethical to breed albino dogs, and many are rescues.

Although albino pets are rare, their fans are plentiful. Here are just a few winning hearts on Instagram.
