    this is common in some of the Staffords. 1 question does the pup go outside much? I honestly find pups who spend most of their time indoors have this issue.
    I took in a friends pup for a couple weeks with this issue and his pigment started to darken as we where outside a lot of the day . No scientific proof this helps just my experience.

    Sorry for the late update,


    I took my puppies to the vet yesterday they was a bit nervous but went well, got them both weighed, skin-ears-mouth checked.. all normal, and will get stool sample test results later on today or tomorrow.

    About the male the vet told me that the lighter pigment areas around the eyes and behind his ears are nothing to worry about and that it might darken out later.

    He also told me to change the dry food im using (X) to something else (Y) because what im using is poor on some the things they need now and that it might cause them problems later "without names but its well known" so much for trusting reputable brands :grin:.

    Jack_c92 : I just checked your uploads of your boy and i really like what im seeing, he looks so good.

    Lizzie13: LOL no worries , i got the help i need anyway!

    Beth L : Yes they are indoor almost all the time, and that crossed my mind too that they might need some sunshine? im trying to get them out more now.

    Jamielvsaustin : I really did, and thanks :) I'm from egypt.


    Again, thanks for everyone who took time to reply and help.

    What you'll find is that reputation for being good and actually being good are often two entirely different concepts.

    I like to use Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor to find out why some foods are better than others.

    Also, please google "littermate syndrome" as it's often difficult to raise littermates together, even though it may seem like a good idea.

    Thank you for mentioning that website unoriginal, i was googling dog food reviews and this website came up but i didn't know how trusted was it amongst owners because the internet is filled with bias reviews.

    Obviously, i never heard about littermate syndrome before, thank you for telling me about that, how long does it take for a case like that to develop?

    because considering other factors+ this, i could send one of them with my uncle and cousin later on.
