Google Storms Regime, the site has excellent advise about caring for a dilute doberman. It would also be a good idea to have her thyroid tested later on. I would try Acana Pacifica if the Natures Domain doesnt work out.

The losing hair is genetic. I've had some small success with using MSM supplement, seems to help them grow a bit more coat.

The red sores, however, aren't a health issue exclusive to dilute Dobermans, and that needs to be checked by the vet. Staph infection needs ruled out, as well as many other skin conditions that could be.
