My Malamute/Collie mix had black spots on his tongue. I think it came from the mal side.

Yeah black spots on the tongue doesn't indicate the dog is a chow or a chow mix. My friend's golden retriever has a black spot on his tongue and he is purebred. I have seen lots of dogs that have no chow in them with a spotted tongues.

Just to add, chows and sharpei don't have black, or spots, their tongues are purple.

Lucy has a spotty black/purple tongue...but I'm fairly certain there is chow in her. We train with a purebred golden who has some tongue freckles too though. The owner calls them her dog's "naughty spots"

Izze had black pigment on her tongue. I also had a rescue Doberman & a rescued GSD with black pigment on their tongues. It wasn't like the same color as the chows or chow mixes. In fact I have seen a good many mixes get mislabeled in shelters because they have black pigment on their tongue & people automatically think chow mix.

But yes, it is a common thing in ACDs, they can also have black pigment in their mouths as well it comes from the Dalmatian part of their ancestry I think.

They aren't always solid, they are frequently spotted/blotchy.

My parents bred chows for years when I was growing up, I'm really surprised I didn't end up a fatality statistic because of those dogs.

Yes, chows/ shar pei's tongues are actually a bluish color, not black. I looked & the black pigment that was on Izze's tongue was a lot darker then any of the chow/ shar pei mixes that I saw.

I did get a lot of "chow mix" comments when people saw her tongue though , I even had one guy tell me that black spots on a dogs tongue was a sign of a badly bred dog

Our husky had several spots and so does our cattle dog. I've seen them on a ton of dogs though.
