:confused: i just got a pit today and he has blue spots on the tounge.i heard that blue spots means chow. the dad also had blue spots and the mom didn't . the dad is abda/akc/okc registered, the mom is not. doesw this mean that it is just part of the blood line

Yes, Chows can have blue tounges, but purebred dogs of a different breed can have spots on their tounges.

Here's a website that says purebred Aussies can have tounge spots, so I'm sure purebred Pits can too. ^_^

oh, and PS - this post should have been in dog general, not pet general. pet general is mainly for pets other than dogs or cats. ;)

goldens & GSD's, danes, I've even seen a couple labs, all can have blue spotsas well as the others already mentioned, I am sure their are other breeds out there that do too. Not sure weather or not they can still be used as show but it is a normal nothing to worry about thing otherwise

Many breeds of dogs can have dark spots on their tongues. It's not necessarily in their breed standard, and disqualifies them from being shown in conformation, but lots of them have them nonetheless.

I groom several dogs with spotted tongues, including a lab, a golden and a Australian shepherd. My purebred Jindo has purple spots on his tongue.

Hi everyone!
New to the site, but found it when I was searching for info. on dogs with spotted tongues...had a friend tell me only chows had spotted tongues, but he is hardly ever right...and I proved it once again!!! We just got a new puppy...he is a pug mix with purple spots on his tongue and the roof of his mouth is black...but where is mom is from there are no chows for miles....thanks for clearing up this matter, and giving me much relief, as I have had a chow chow before and they tend to be a bit crazy...lol :eek:

any breed can have spots on their tounge. my pomerainian,Beanie has a small spot on his tounge. i had a german shepherd/malamute cross with almost a whole blue tounge.
