Hi Everyone,

I have a 5 year old Malumute named Kaniq ( his picture is on here) I just noticed while brushing him that a skin area on his belly is sort of black, like the pigment is changing from pink to black> it is not a heavy black but none the less it has me a little worried. I have had Malamutes for about 15 years now and I am not sure if I have run across this before. It doesn't hurt him and the area is a little flacky maybe just some dry skin. Anyone else have this issue. The area is about 4 inches in diameter. He is not scratching there either
