My miniature pinscher is less than year. He goes outside regularly. He plays in the grass & woodchips. He also likes to lie under a big pine tree.

Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
Those spots are likely to be epidermal collarettes - skin lesions most indicative of a superficial spreading pyoderma - a Staph infection, usually. Can you upload a photo of his belly to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
