Red Merle Has Kinda Bald Spot On His Nose?
(Newport, OR, USA)
I just adopted a 9 month old red merle Aussie. When we first got him we thought he might have gotten scratched by some previous cats he was living with and maybe he had a rash on his nose. Well upon further investigation we've discovered that he has no scratch on his nose and that it is normal, especially for merles, to have kinda a bald spot on the top of the nose and it is suppose to fill in with hair by one year old. I'm worried his won't.
Has anyone else ever had this happen and it actually fill in by a year old? It's not really bad it does just look like a rash so it's not like his whole nose is bald, just mostly right at the nose and then up the muzzle a little, eventually fading as you get further up the muzzle. Thanks
