Question Pink fur

Hello,
I've noticed my 1 year old's white fur is starting to turn pink. Any idea what this is and/or what I should do? She just recently came into our lives so this is all new to me.
Thanks.

Hi and Welcome. Could your pup be licking her feet or the area that is pink? That usually is a sign of a skin irritation or allergy to food or whatever is touching the skin. When the irritation stops, or the allergen is removed the licking will stop and then, over time the white hair will grow in again white. The pink is just staining from the saliva. Good luck and keep us posted.

We just switched her from puppy to adult food in the same brand, could that have caused it? I'm not sure how to go about finding out what she's allergic to. Any suggestions?
Also, she was just moved from the family she had been with for a year, could the licking be stress? Although I haven't really noticed any licking. Maybe it's at night?
Thanks so much.

LOL

It started on the pads of her paws but now it's starting to go up her legs.
I thought it was the new bed I bought her because it was red and white and I thought it was the red dye somehow, so I washed the bed.
Now I'm thinking it wasn't the bed after all.
Also, she had her vaccines yesterday. Could it be a reaction? Now I'm a little scared.

Did this just start today and is traveling as the day goes on? If so I would call the vet ASAP.

I noticed the pads of her paws were pink yesterday or the day before but I just noticed on the legs today. I will keep a close eye on her. I just looked at her again and now it doesn't seem as pink. It almost depends on the light. (I'm sure she thinks I've gone batty, picking her up and examining her legs and paws closely every few minutes.)
