Default Chihuahuas with pink noses?

Having just looked at the pic of lovely little Pretzel, I'm left wondering how common, or otherwise are pink noses in the Chihuahua?

You know, I just can't remember seeing one before. Chocolate yes, pink no

Is it very rare?

hi Rosie's mom...my pretzel's name is actually Kotton...but we call her pretzel occasionally LOL From all I have read, pink noses are not as uncommon in the white chis (i could be wrong though!) that have the "ruby" eyes (these eyes appear red at times). Kotton is one of these...in the right light we call her Devil Dawg because her eyes just glow bright red. Also from what I have read, they are uncommon in the rest of the chis...but again I could be wrong and would be interested in seeing what others say

Albino Chihuahuas will always have pink noses, and pink eyes. Some creams have pink noses as well, and as far as I know, cream is the only color that would be acceptable to have the pink nose for showing.

They say it is rare in dogs, but does happen. I've read some say that it is just an extreme dilution of the color gene. True Albinism is without pigment anywhere. Dogs with all white fur, pink noses, pink eyes, pink paws, etc, are said to have more health problems than ones with pigment.
