Default Black dots on belly

I have just discovered 2 tiny black dots on Sophie's belly. She is almost 5 months old and stays in an apartment. As for her daily walks, i don't really let her come into contact with grass.

What could it be?
Thanks in advance.

It's hard to tell from your pictures. Are you positive that it's a discoloration of the skin, and not a parasite (i.e. tick, flea, lice?)

If you go here: POODLE COAT COLORS: WHITE & CREAM

They talk about the two types of white poodle. Sometimes a poodle may show up with blue spots. I don't know if this is whats your poo has but it was my first thought.

From what i've seen online and after looking once again at her belly, i don't think it could be neither parasites, nor some genes from her coat colour.

It looks like some kind of "pimple" with a black top and it has 3 of them one on top of one another at some good distance.

It could be a black head, black heads often show up on bellies.

It looks kind of like the nipples that my silver spoo has.

some time ago I was staring and staring at some spots on my spoo and having anxiety about them. I was worried that they were warts or some sort of terrible thing he caught at the dog park. Then it dawned on me that I was looking at his nipples!

Sometimes I really wonder about myself!

After seeing so many opinions, i decided to take a closer look. Nipples they are, indeed... Well, good for us it's no need to panic, shameful for me for not realising.
