Hello Cindy,
Boxer with tear stains; Yeast stains in canine;

Here is a helpful article that I wrote on this very subject -  Please visit here http://bulldogvitamins.blogspot.com/2015/01/tear-stains-herbal-remedy-wipe-stain

My Article gets into depth on Causes and Tips :

Tear Stain Causes
Physical characteristics, such as long hair on the muzzle or around the eyes, deep facial wrinkles, blocked tear ducts or bulging eyes can cause tear stains. Biological causes of red tear stains include red yeast, various eye and ear infections and pH imbalance. Red tear stains can also be caused by environmental factors, such as plastic food or water bowls and minerals in the water your dog drinks.
