Sonar didn't have one until he was about 8 months old. Then all the sudden it started to develop.

6 months old - no spot

17 months and a huge black spot

Tober has a black spot on his tongue, it is the size of a chick pea and is located very far back (only seen when he yawns).

Current GSD doesn't. However, we had one in the past (not 100% sure that he was purebred, but the previous owners said he was and he appeared to be) that had one or two spots. Not sure how common it is in shepherds.

Three out of the 4 shepherds that have owned me have had black spots. This is Shadow my ♥ dog who passed away in November.

Dakota, a GSD mix, had a few small spots when she was a puppy. They grew and multiplied until her tongue looked like this. From the research I did way back when, it can happen with several breeds (including the GSD):

Both of my girls have a single black spot toward the back of their tongue.

Pippa has one. I have had people ask me if she is mixed with chow.

Rivers does a big one on the back of his tongue. In fact, all the GSDs I've had have had one.
Here is Rivers:

Zira does.

She started to get that when she was around 11 months old... It gradually got bigger, but looks to have stopped now.

Vet said she was fine.. nothing to worry about.
