Question Dark spots inside my dog ears

Hello Everyone,

Please kindly look at these pictures and find out this case and what it could be and how could it affect my dog ears?

My dog age is 9 months and he is a male.
His ears during running it appear flopping

I think it could be wax. Possibly mites, but your post didn't mention that his ears were bothering him. I suggest you clean the ears. If it is wax, that should take care of it. If not, I suggest you check with your vet.

I've yet to have a gsd with perfectly pink ears - it's quite possibly pigment. When cleaning, dirt or wax should come off easily.

that doesnt look like wax
looks like pigmentation that he's born with but you would have known that if you had him for a while

unless you see excessive head shaking, ear scratching, i wouldn't worry about it

i would just bring up on your next routine vet visit and ask about it

It wouldn't affect your dog's ears, floppy ears are the result of genetic inheritance . It could be somebody's failed attempt to put a tattoo, either, or - too early for your pup, or using wrong ink.

That looks to me pigmentation of his skin. It would be something he always had. Had you not notice it prior?? My gsd has similar spots in his ear my kids always called them Pokemon coins as they are almost perfectly round- lol! It would not make his ears floppy that is genetics -soft ears.

My dog has the same spot on one of his ears. It is in the same place where the ear were folding while it was floppy.
