I've heard of dog tummies darkening, almost like a tan , from lying on their back in the sun. But individual spots are new to me...well at least on dogs. As a human I certainly utilize those dark spot correcting products.

Lola developed them on her pink belly when she was probably 10-12ish weeks old. The vet said they're normal. By the way, your little guy is ADORABLE!! That sweet face is too much! I hope the appointment goes well and all is good

When i brought Buffy in to be groomed for the first time, the groomer called her freckled, tan-colored blotches on her otherwise pink belly "Bichon skin." The blotches have gotten larger as she has gotten older, and there is less pink skin showing on her belly.

My boy is a black and white parti, and he has the Belton gene big time, but the only black spots he has on his belly and abdomen are nipples. That may be what Tyler has, Mary.

That's what I was thinking they were, Starr. Thanks.
