Is It Normal for a Purebred Black Pug to Have a White Spot?

my black pug puppy I just bought a week ago, I realized it has a tiny white spot on the underside of it's chest I'm wondering if it's normal for a purebred pug or if it's a mix breed sold as a pug.

Completely black dogs often have a tiny cluster of white hairs on their chest. If it is bigger than several dozen hairs, then it is a fault.

I assume you're not planning to show this dog though, and that it will be fixed. It will not affect it's potential to be a great pet.

    I don't believe they should have white

    Coat
    The coat is fine, smooth, soft, short and glossy, neither hard nor woolly.

    Color
    The colors are silver, apricot-fawn, or black. The silver or apricot-fawn colors should be decided so as to make the contrast complete between the color and the trace and the mask.

    Markings
    The markings are clearly defined. The muzzle or mask, ears, moles on cheeks, thumb mark or diamond on forehead, and the back trace should be as black as possible. The mask should be black. The more intense and well defined it is, the better. The trace is a black line extending from the occiput to the tail.

    It would be unusual for a pure breed to have a marking like that. The only thing that makes my black and tan German shepherd a mix is the white patch on his chest. I am told he can't possibly be a pure bred black and tan because of it, but it doesn't bother us. He's the best dog we've ever had. But we didn't buy him, he was adopted. Check with the AKC website, I'm sure they can tell you.

    If you have the registration papers, you have no need to worry. They can sometimes have a small stripe or "splodge" on their chest.
    However, if you have no official documenation, you are probably conned. Without papers, you would ofcourse pay the same as any mixed breed dog.
