Normal for pugs to have dark spots?

My pug who is now 6 years old & healthy weight. Has recently gotten a dark blackish grey patch on her belly. Has anyone experienced this? Is it normal?

It doesn’t itch her or bother her in anyway. I can touch it and she is unbothered. I just don’t know if I should be worrried and take her to the vet.

    Many dogs get dark patches on their skin. They tend to get more of them as they get older, and the patches can even get darker in summer if the dog spends time in the sun. If it doesn't look irritated and isn't a lump, don't worry about it.

    How the hell can we know what it is? Get this dog to a VET. That's NOT normal.

    It is probably just a pigment change. It is not uncommon but could be serious. This is the closest I could find about your dogs problem.
