The black stuff is most likely a build up of tartar. It forms around the gum line due to food stuffs hanging around the gum line rather than being cleaned away when gnawing bones etc. The gums bleed because they become soft and sensitive. In time the plaque will make the gums recede, which in turn causes the teeth to become loose. See the vet for a definitive diagnoses and treatment before the problem becomes any worse. It sounds as if the dog needs the canine equivalent of a scale and polish, where the plaque is chipped away from the teeth allowing the gums to do their job properly.

Or just google canine tartar and gingivitis, I'm sure you'll find lots of info.
pet periodontal disease

Easily avoidable and treatable.
