I thought of that too, CR, but I hope the vet would pick up on it if the puppy was young enough that they haven't changed color yet vs flagging it as a sign of a mixed breed.
How old is your puppy, dm? I'm assuming he's black?
Pictures really would help. Not only can you judge a puppy's condition from that (too skinny, stunted looking etc) but sometimes you can pick up differences in head shape or body proportion which help you guess whether the dog is probably a pure-bred or mixed dobe or even something else entirely. There are a lot of breeds who are black and tan (black and rust).
