Design jewelry,- not dogs!

|Sun exposure is the main thing that will blacken skin. When we put the adult pattern on a white poodle their back legs and loin get shaved. Within a day or two of going in the sun that skin will become black.
Also, my Chinese cresteds have no hair and have pink skin all Winter but as soon as the jackets come off in the Spring they will have totally black skin.
Nothing to worry about in either case. It is the reaction of the skin pigment to the increased light, much like our skin tanning.
