Does your GSD have a black spot on their tongue?

Rugen has one about the size of a quarter on the back of his tongue. I noticed that his grandsire and great-grandsire both have them as well.

I was wondering how common these spots are~

You can check multiple boxes if you have more than one GSD.

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

Re: Does your GSD have a black spot on their tongue?

my current two do not, but a female that i had a few years back did... and currently my cousin and my best friends gsds have them.

so i voted one yes and one no. they seem to be pretty common, but not so common that one would expect them.

I voted yes, but we're actually 50/50 around here. Of the 4 pb GSDs currently at the house Grace has one dime sized spot, Griffin has multiple spots, Leo and Rafe have none.

Re: Does your GSD have a black spot on their tongue?

Hardy has lots, I thought that they were due to carrying the black gene, ie they could sire black pups if bred with another dog with it. Is that right?

But have just seen that someones Golden Retriever had them so maybe that blows that theory?
