    Hi Jeffrey! I found a similar discussion of Saber's green patch on a groomers chat site. Someone suggested that it may be a pseudomonos infection. Maybe your vet could analyse a sample and see if it's an infection. Hope this helps.

I have tried wiping it with wet wipes and cleans pads but it seems it is not dirt and is actually the colour of the fur. Saber's natural coat is a brindle and white and the green colour is only appearing on the brindle colour patch between his eye wrinkle on the right side of his face. Here are some pics it took of the green patch and also a pic of Saber.

    Any help would be very much appreciated

    That looks like a pseudomonas infection to me...most often appears in areas that remain damp(tears in face creases). Your vet will likely treat with oral antibiotics; Cipro or Levofloxacin. I'd go with the antibiotic that is cheapest. It can take weeks/months to get rid of. At this point the infection is probably only in the hair follicles and that green staining is a dead giveaway. This is nothing to be alarmed about.

I guess i will just keep monitoring this and hope it goes away or at least not get any worse.
    Probably because the fold is moist.
