Isis seems to be showing more and more spots in her coat..she's always had 3 that are dark brindle & very obvious..her eye,ear and back

but now she's got them all over...atleast 15 of them..about the size of a nickel/quarter....we've never seen them before,in the 2 yrs we've had her...and she's 6 now.

maybe they show up as they age? haha i thought they were dirt..b/c our dirt here is red clay like and stains everything but we wash her about every 2-3 weeks, she likes to get dirty haha.. they are spots in her fur that go all the way down to the root..

kinda cute...

was wondering if anyone else's pup has these...whether your pup is all white or some

here are a few pics i just took...she refused to stay still lol..so i couldnt get all of them,you get the idea...

My previous boxer Buster did get them with age. I always called them his "age spots." He was a fawn with white on his chest that eventually became spotted white. Now Maddie on the other hand... well she is just part dalmation!

That is really weird Ky! It looks like you splashed some coffee on her! I've never seen the fur change color before, well, of course only if they are turning gray.  :lol:

Ya, they are fur spots, not skin spots. He has one on his ear and on his leg. They are dark, brindle like spots in his fur. The first time I saw it I thought they were dirt from the yard :) I scrubbed and scrubbed and then figured out it was fur color.

Pigment continues to migrate after birth - maybe it migrates (albeit very slowly) throughout life.... Or it could be a form of age spots, sort of.  There is some thought that some Boxers might have a ticking gene - but I'm not sure if ticking shows up (or increases) later in life; I haven't really looked into ticked breeds. :)

Sadie has tons of spots!  Most are brindle, couple black markings still on her ear.  I told the wife she's a dalmationoxer!

Rox has lots of skin spots but then also fur spots like you are talking about.  these are appearing on her ears and legs and I swear there's more every day!!  they start off small and then get bigger and bigger!!  Very strange, I'll try and post pics when I can!!

LOL soo glad to see this post, hubby and I have noticed Blitzen has more fawn spots and existing ones getting bigger! Donner and Sophie both had the black skin spots increase with age. Have wondered if it was typical, especially Blitzens increase in fawn spots, it's like they just pop out overnight!

My two whites did the same thing.  More pigmentation with age.  This was in the skin, not spots of darker hair.
