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

1182

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?

All of mine have had very thin hair on their bellies. They don’t get fleas, if you have them groomed
regularly.

Yes..in general they tend to have a thinner coat on their chest/stomach area.

Vilho here in Finland came almost totally naked on the bottom side of body about 6 years ago when he was at the age of 2.
Vet wanted to analyse this and there is some thing that causes this but it doesn’t explain why it’s only underside but enywhere else there is allso winter hair grown.

Have you never seen a dog before?

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.
