Yorkie with no hair behind ears
Facebook friend contacted me to see if I could adopt their yorkie, are having another child and don't have the time for her. She is 4 years old and not coming from good conditions. She has absolutely no hair on her ears, the skin is brown. I am afraid to bring her into my home, I'm not sure if some kind of mite could cause that. Or a thyroid problem. I'm just afraid to let her near my dog.. anyone have any recommendations? I am willing to take her to the vet to get lab work and further work up, but just hesitant.

If you don't mind paying, take her to the vet first, they may do a skin scraping and send off to the lab. Tell this friend if the results are ok, you'll take the dog.

Hope this works out for you to keep this little one. Sounds like she needs a good home with a loving Yorkie mom.

My yorkie also had it - it looks like leather? I used tea tree oil and within a week I saw new hair growth. Worth a try?
