Hi all. I have just taken on a 'nearly 7 year old' dobe. She is a red, I think, although advertised as Chocolate?. She has an amazing temperment, is a stunning looking dog and very well behaved. Her previous owner no longer had the time to spend on her and one of their other dogs had recently gone blind so she made the hard decision to rehome Amber.
Unfortunately it appears that she has a condition, which I have made enquiries about, I now believe is 'Colour Mutant Alopecia'. from the middle of her back to her tail, she has patches of baldness and flaky dry skin.
I would appreciate it if someone who either has a dog with the same condition or someone who is aware of the condition could advise me and whether they have found anything that helps the condition.
I do intend to take her this week to the RSPCA to have her Microchipped, Vaccinated and the usual 'once over'. We also have other animals, a Dalmation called Oliver who adores her. 14 Bunnies (reg breeder), 12 Ferrets, 2 Guinea Pigs, 2 fish tanks - - - oh and three children x x
Look forward to hearing from you. Take Care KarrieNic xxxxx
