I just bought a purebred CKC White Bull Terrier. He has 2 large black spots on skin and hair - one on back and one on but/tail. He also has a lot of black tick mark looking spots under his coat on skin. The skin on his belly is covered with round colored skin spots. It makes me question his true background. However, he and both parents look otherwise like typical Bull Terriers (head, body and eye shape). Is this normal and just faults from breed standard? Are there a lot of all white with disqualifying spots dogs out there and we just don't see a lot of pictures of them because it is undesirable per the breed standard OR Do you think his DNA is in question?

This is due to the Dalmatian being crossed into this breed many many years ago. It is a common skin coloration, especially in pure white or predominantly White Bull terriers. Hope this helps

HI we have a 7 month old pure breed English bull terrier he is pure white with a heart shaped patch on his left eye but when you turn him on his back you can see little spots in his skin and on investigating. We were also told it was the dalmatian mix that did this and as they are white you see them where as brindles etc they are hidden.
