My purebred Westie has pink skin and I was told that purebreds have black skin by another person owning a Westie. What color skin are they suppose to have??

According to AKC breed standards they do not make mention of color of skin only the quality of the coat. I do not have any other information. You might want to contact the national Westie club to ask about the incidence of nonpigmented skin. If you find out anything more I would be interested in finding out.

Best wishes,
