Red face Scars changing fur-color?

Hello,

as some of you might know (if you read my entry thread ) my girl was possibly used as a bait dog when she was really little (we got her with 6 months, so it was definitely before that).

She has a lot of bite scars in her face, which is why the assumption of being a bait dog came up (from the rescue and my vet).

Anyways, we had her for 3 months now, her coat is nice and shiny, a lot of fur grew thicker, she got fur again around her eyes and looks really good (my opinion ).

Within the last 1 1/2 to 2 weeks we noticed that she has white fur growing back were the scars are, especially the smaller ones (the bigger one underneath the eye grew over by now, the one above the eye will probably always be like that, but that's okay, gives her a lot of character).
Is that normal? Might sound like a stupid question, but as you can see on the pictures, it does look a little strange

Before:



After:

My black cat had this happen wherever he had scars too.

Also she looks so much happier in that second pic! So glad you've given her a great home.

When I was growing up, we had a light tan colored dog who was bit by a larger dog. When the fur came back in, it was brown. After a while, her hair went back to normal though.

Our pug has something like this. We got him as a rescue and during our first trip to the vet, the vet said he possibly at one point had a deep tissue wound (I think that was the description she used) and that it is common for fur to grow back differently in that area.
Scooter is completely tan, except for that one dark brown spot.

Manna got attacked as a pup and had a tooth puncture under her right eye. White fur grew back there as well.
