My chihuahua's skin randomly darkens on his belly and with in a month it turns back to normal. I asked the vet and they said it was just pigment changes. It has changed back and forth about four times since I've gotten him four years ago and he hasn't had any health issues related to it.

When my chi pups got older their bellys turned darker skinned. As puppies they were sort of pinkish, then as they grew older, they darkened to a dark brown , grayish. But, my chi's are fawn fur. I suspect if they were black fur, their bellies would even be darker.
