This isn't true of every black, though it may be of the ones you've seen. I've had 2 blacks who never got any bleed through between the toes or elsewhere, and scar tissue areas healed back in black as well. And I've known a few others that were the same. So while bleed through and white scar spots aren't uncommon on black dogs, they are not always present either.
