interesting question
by: Anonymous

This question intrigued me, so I checked out my Pyr. He has some grey along his shoulders and sure enough, the skin under there was also a bit darker. Not grey exactly, but there is a definite pigment change compared to skin under the white portion of his coat.
As to why, I can only think this coloration could have something to do with the presence of ancient genetics, with all of that culminating in this breed's appearance at the present day.

I would just like to add this one little thing to my post: pink skin can sometimes be prone to melanoma(s).
It may be a good idea to keep a careful watch of your dog's 'spots'....if they change, become darker, raised, or irregular in shape do take your dog to your vet without delay. Taking this precaution may save his life.
