Do all dogs have a perfectly round iris? My dogs are odd...

My dog (she is a mix) clearly does not. I cannot seem to find anything online as to whether this is breed specific or not. I am not concerned anything is wrong with her, just curious why she has more like a capital D shaped eye and my other two have circles for eyes (irises).

Anyone wanna go examine their dogs now? lol

We joke a lot and call her a furby because it does look a little odd... but it part of her character

Glaciers is not perfectly circle and the inside part of his iris (closest to his nose.....ish lol) is kind of shaped straight. Can you take a pic?

Yeah! That's exactly like Sassie's... but my other two are not like that. If they are, it is not so dramatic as hers... I will find a pic, yes.

None of my dogs have/had that so I have no idea how common it is. Honestly I never even knew it was possible.

I haven't seen that either... but it's bilateral, so I'd think that was an indicator that this may be a variation of normal... ?
