    Are there patches falling off? coloring change? Hard to tell from photo.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Can you possibly take a picture from further away? Is it more like thinning, changing color?

    Thanks - these are much better. Doesn't look like staph, or like seasonal flank alopecia.... I would take her into the vet and ask for a skin scrape, it kinda looks like it might be a form of demodectic mange (mites), its common in younger babies. Which they can treat easily with antibiotics.

    *Side note: if you saw little patches of hair falling out - that would likely be staph. They are crusty little patches.
    If you saw thinning and blackening of the hair along the sides mostly - that's likely seasonal flank.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    agreed.... I was thinking manage too, which is why I asked if Ellie was under a year old.

    @TyTysmom & @2BullyMama - Is this something that is contagious?? Could she have picked this up some where, can she give it to others??

    No, not contagious to other animals or humans, usually transmitted from mother. Its' immune related, which is why it tends to happen in younger pups.
