Standard Poodle Q&A

We have an approx 7 month old newfie mix and I just wondered if it is common for them to loose their puppy fur? He has lost alot of his beautiful, long, shiny, silky fur. Is this common or should I take him in to the vet or change his dog food?

You should bring it to the vet just to be safe. But it could be due to the mix. Occassionally, a dog will shed. But not this much. He should grow in a new coat as soon as you change his food


I have a 6 month AKC newfie and he is doing the same thing. We use an all natural lamb & rice puppy food and he weighs 68 lbs. So, he is thin looking and is losing his "fluffy" hair... But, from what I understand this all is normal. (I, too, was very upset) I am told he should "fill out" by the time he's a year & will also grow an "adult" coat that is thicker. I think this is a "pre-teen" stage of awkwardness just as we humans have ~ you know, in middle school. :)
