Can dogs see colors?

Can dogs see colors?

The retina is the inside surface of the back of the eye where the brain receives signals from the outside world. The retina contains 2 types of cells – rods and cones. Dogs have rods and cones in their retinas, but in different proportion than in the human retina. Although they can differentiate colors, what they see is likely a more muted version of what we see. Dogs, especially, probably see more shades of gray than they do all of the other colors.
