Question:

: Hi there,

: My 6 month old JRT, who has a brown-spotted face and an all-white body, has started to show some spots on the top of his hind quarters near his tail. The hair seems to look like the color of his face, but it's not very concentrated. The skin underneath these spots looks normal. Is this a problem that I need to see my vet about???

Hi Jon,

Nothing to worry about! This is what we normally refer to as ticking and this will happen throughout your terrier's life. One of the reasons we call our JRTs a "work in progress." :)

Regards,
Marie
