Black pups-white chest?

Are black pups suppose to have white spots on their chests? I googled Tina of photos and some had them so did not. The older dogs however did not have any. I have my deposit on one and we hope to have her home Dec27th. Personally now that we have seen her, I doubt this will make a difference, just curious.
I was so excited to meet her parents, they were very sweet wonderful looking dogs! Mom came right up to me, checked me out politely and then sat for me to rub her head. Dad was just as sweet and they showed off a few of their fetching and obedience skills for me. I'm going to have my hands full & I will be here for a long time!

Some all black pups have white spots on their chest - pretty common. It usually goes away as the pup gets older.

Keira has a little white spot on her chest but she also has kind of highlights on her feet, between her toes and the back of her legs have some tan and even tiny unnoticeable spots by her ears...

My adult dog has some white on her chest. It doesn't affect them.
