Fur color change after skin injury

Mojo had an abraded area on his tail a while back, no idea how it happened, but it healed up fine. Now, where the scab was, his hair is growing in jet black, in the midst of his silvery tail. Has anyone had this happen before?

yes! my pup had a sebaceous cyst surgically removed (requiring an incision site of about 4 inches). As a puppy she was a rich golden colour, but she has lightened up considerably (shes 2 now) to the point I'd say shes cream coloured. Well wouldnt you know it when the fur started to grow back at the line of the incision it grew back dark golden!! Shes darkening up now all over, so its not as noticeable but at first you literally saw a line of dark fur where the incision was. pretty cool.

Yup, the spots where Jack had scabs from ticks have come in black. It is weird.

TTFN,

I just looked it up and only found one post with the same thing. She said the hair on her white dog came in dark but she also said it was wierie I think it was ask a vet .
The Dogs that have damage to deep skin layers do grow this stiff "emergency" hair. Often, if the skin heals completely through, the natural style, soft hairs will recover.
