Maltese has pink around eyes?

I have a 3 year old Maltese and I’ve noticed that she has this pink skin color around her eyes . I don’t remember seeing her skin around her eyes that pink but the thing is , her whole body is pink. She’s an all white dog and whenever I wash her I can see her pink skin but it just looks unhealthy around her eyes. She drinks clean water and eats healthy dog food daily so idk what could be the problem. Is this normal for her breed or not?

    Don’t worry that is normal for a Maltese

    Check to see if her fur is sparse around her eyes, then it is normal. If not, you should check with a vet.

    Maltese are supposed to have black eye rims and black noses. However, BYBs and puppy mills don’t pay attention to the breed standard so we see a lot of Maltese, Poodles and other breeds with pink eye rims. It is caused by a lack of pigment. It’s not unhealthy, it just doesn’t look as nice as the black eye rims.
