Hello! First time poster here. I’ve recently discovered a strange hard object sticking out of my 10 year old cockapoo’s back, near the base of his tail. I thought it was a tick, but on closer inspection it seems more akin to a giant blackhead. He didn’t care if you touched it, but got mad when I tried to pull on it. It’s still there, and doesn’t seem to be causing him pain. Any ideas of what it could be?

Not sure from the photos - is it slightly red in the second one?

Could it be a cutaneous horn?

Thanks for the reply! It doesn’t seem to be more pink than his other skin on his back. Been looking into cutaneous horns- that does seem to match the description and look of what’s going on here. I read they will get bigger over time, is this true?
