Dog Pimples

My niece was examining her seven month old Shih Tzu today and found a pimple on his neck. It was black and crusty and it fell off when she touched it. Any idea what this could be?

Are you sure it was a pimple? Did it leave a red mark when it fell off? Was the dog outside for extended periods of time that it could have gotten a tick? It may not be anything to worry about, unless it recurs again in the future. If it does, take the dog to a vet.
