Black And White Spotted Greyhounds

Recommended Posts

I don't feed my kids Nutro either....I feed them Innova and my female has got tons of spots on her. She didn't have that when I first adopted her.

We joke that Specky is trying to change from a white greyhound with black spots to a black greyhound with white spots!! I would say that in the two years we have had her, she has pretty much doubled in spots!

Uber is doing the same. He went from a white and brindle to a white and brindle ticked. When I first met him over a year ago, his white was pure white. Now he's gone spotty everywhere.

I suspect that he's feeling left out in the sea of brindles so he's going chameleon on me.

My red girl, Nadia, has a few and they do seem to be multiplying (or maybe I need to clean my glasses... ;))

I've heard it's a "ticking" thing. My IGs are ticked (spots on skin) and the ticking increases with age. It's a sign of wisdom :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I don't know, if Opal gets any more spots on her, she'll be black! But these pix were taken a year and a half apart. I can't see any difference. :unsure








Oh look at her! I love her!!!! I could just smooch that tummy! :inlove

I think the spots on the skin seem like they might get darker in the summer, like freckles or a suntan.

:lol Lucy was white with black on her head at the age of three and more and more a dalmation as she has gotten older.

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

This is funny- I was about to post a similar question! June Bug is red/fawn but her skin is turning balck. Her butt and legs are black, and her tummy is spotted and filing in. She had white/ pink skin when we got her. I think the black on her face is getting darker.


She does love to lie in the sun if she can outside. I will post a picture if I can figure out how to do it. She is 4 years old and we have had her since last fall.
