I have a 7 year old apricot toy poodle. A couple of months ago I noticed he had a spot about the size of a half dollar with no hair on the side back of his right back leg. I figured it was just irritation and just made sure it was clean. I also noticed it looked dry at that point. Well, now there is still no hair. But no dryness. If you look at it closely, it looks like little black spots on the skin where the hair is missing? Any ideas what this is? I have pics but not sure how to load them.
