Is it Normal for a Boston terrier to have very little Hair on his Belly?

934

Here is a question from Bianca asking other Boston Terrier owners if it’s normal for a Boston Terrier to have very little hair in certain areas.

She says : “I’d like to know if it’s normal for a Boston Terrier to have very little hair on his belly and on the inside of his legs? My dog is one year old now and he is losing his hair on his belly. On other areas of his body his fur is very shiny and thick. You can see that his fur is very thin at his armpits an near his back leg.”

Does anyone have any advices and/or experiences?

In The Netherlands there are not many Bostons and my vet has never seen one in real life, Zeno is the first. So i think she’s comparing him to other breeds and what they have when their hair is less in some places. That’s why i asked this question on this facebook page, because there are a lot of other boston owners here who know what is normal for a boston. I can take these awnsers with me to the vet, maybe that explanes things.

I’ve had 6 Boston’s over the years and none have had a lot of hair on their bellies. I thought that was just how Boston’s were made.

Mine has very little hair anywhere. She is a beautiful Boston and I’ve had her everywhere, every vet said allergies and I changed her food every time they said. She’s had expensive allergy shots but nothing has helped. What hair she has is very very short. She feels like a seal. She is happy and healthy otherwise and the allergist said she was hurting or itching so I decided to leave her alone. I love her even is she has no hair .

My boy has short coarse hair. We call him Sammy Seal. He has very little belly hair. A lot of Bostons are this way and unless she is itching with red skin etc, and losing a lot of hair, becoming bald around her tail or back, then I would say she is just a normal Boston. She has more belly hair than my boy.

She doesn’t itch. She doesn’t seem in distress in any way except for not much hair. In the past she has scratched her neck and because there not much hair she has left red scratches. Has not happened in a year or so. Yes they took blood test but allergy test was not really done. They have to do a scratch test on each individual things.

And is she itching sometimes? Mine is sometimes a bit itchy, but his skin is not red or anything. So the allergy the vet is talking about is not something i believe in….

Did you do an allergy test with a blood sample?
