These adorable pups were born in Yancheng City in China last month with gray and white fur that's gradually turned black and white as they've grown up, giving the litter these striking panda-like markings. These little guys appear to be the real thing, but an alarming trend of pet owners dying their companions like wild animals swept through China a few years ago. Traditional hair dyes are safe for human use, but changing the color of a pet's fur requires more application and can be detrimental to their health.

Fur color aside, if you're looking for a companion of your own and are ready for the responsibility, take a look at the ASPCA adoption site or Petfinder.com. But for now, take a look at more photos of these cuties below.
