Default 18 months and starting to gray

i was looking at lexie in the light and noticed that she is starting to gray under her mouth, should i be concerned. i dont remember any of my dogs graying at 18 months. we do have hard well water, would this cause it? I did meet both lexie's sire and dam, neither one was gray and they were a couple of years old.

Zoey has a little bit of gray on her chin. I believe it started at about 18 months as well. She is 2yrs 5 months now and they gray spot hasn't spread any farther. I don't think it's issue.

I would look into the trace minerals the dog is getting in the diet .

I know, mine is 2 1/2 years old and I noticed the same thing. It just doesn't look normal to me. Good to know other GSD have it though. So I take that it is normal?

kyra stayed grey free until about 8 years old, then it seemed her muzzle turned white over night.

JR came to live with me when he was 5 years old and he was extremely gray ... I had two of his offspring who were littermates and both started to get gray while they were very young.
