Pink Around Eyelid on Australian Shepherd Puppy

I am getting a new puppy here in a few weeks. The breeder posted new pics of her online and I noticed one her eyes have a pink hue around the eye.

Is this normal? Her older pics I didn't really notice it.

Eye markings

I can’t be totally sure from your photos, but I think what you are seeing is a bit of blond or brown colouring, similar to the colours in her coat. That will probably get darker and more prominent as she ages, it will be gorgeous!

Might be lack of pigmentation. My puppy has it. Nothing too bad. It's just not part of their breed standardmaking her/him not being able to participate in dog shows (so, if that's your thing, then too bad?).
As for me - I love it! I have lack of pigmentation around my eyes too, so we're both a little bit special. ;)

If what you mean is the reddish coloring on the fur surrounding her left eye, it's tear staining. Body fluids like tears or saliva will stain white or very pale fur that reddish color. Seems she has had some ocular discharge or tearing going on. Since the fur around that eye is so light, you can see the stain.
It does look like she may get some color around her eyes as she matures.
