Hi my AB was sold to us as a purebreed. We've noticed when he's wet he has quite a few sparse black spots on his skin that shows thru his white coat (not as much as a dalmation). Is this a characteristic of a pure bred AB?

Oh yes! My puppy Moose was solid white on one side and white with brindle on the pother well he is now brindle and white with spots on all his white. This has nothing to do with his purity. Very common. By the way your puppy is good looking with such big paws. Going to be big.

Many AB's have spots on thier skin that shows through...my female Jezabel got more pronounced spots as she aged. It's very common, and just about every AB out there has a certain amount of this pigmentation on thier skin.

Blue eyes are what the catahoula contributed. The skin pigmentation (spots) are a bulldog trait...even my English Bulldog has a ton of spots..I have met very few bulldogs in general that didn't.

I thought odins spots on his back were onhis skin, but when I checked them...they are spots of brown hair. He has a ton of them coming in.
