Default 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.

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.

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?
