We're fostering what we believe to be a long hair chihuahua. We got him last week, the guy seemed to have lost quite a bit of his hair around his head and body.

Take a look at the photo's here..

He's been having a blast, he's been rotating his naps in store on the different beds we have.

How old is he?

He is a blue. Blues have a problem with alopecia (baldness). It is hereditary and found in other breeds as well (dobermans, etc.) It is due to a gene.

While very cute, he will probably continue to lose hair and may end up mostly hairless as time goes on.

We have a Chi here named Harry who is a blue and has an almost identical coat, or lack or it. :) If you do a search, you can find pics of him.

The lady from the rescue who asked us to foster him said he was about 2 years old.

So the hair loss might be permenant and might get worse over time, that's good to know.

Is there any treatment that's available to slow it down?

Thanks, I'll search for Harry.
