The colors on the roof of the mouth are just pigment. They really have no meaning at all. It doesn't determine intelligence nor does it determine breed. However, in the past people into showing always thought the more dark in the mouth the better the quality of dog, but this is just a myth and has no bearing.

Just another old wives tale per se: The temperature of a dogs nose does not determine health or sickness.
