Dobby the stray ‘Chiweenie’ is unrecognizable

A stray dog who was found with no fur and crusty ears is almost unrecognizable six months after being adopted.

Dobby the ‘Chiweenie’ – a cross between the Chihuahua and Dachshund – was taken in by Cane Rosso Rescue, in Carrollton, Texas, after being found on the streets. 

The adorable dog, who was named after the Harry Potter house elf with similarly large ears, is now happy and healthy after six months with his owner Brylee. 

Brylee shared a slideshow of images tracking Dobby’s progress on her TikTok account.

Dobby’s owner posted the slideshow of images on TikTok as part of a trend where people show the transformation of their dog in the shelter compared with now. 

The video was posted with the caption: ‘So glad Dobby came into my life!! Big thank you to @canerossorescueofficial for rescuing him’.  

His owner said that Dobby had no fur due to a 'type of non-contagious mange'. Mange is a skin disease caused by mites and dogs can be affected by two types - sarcoptic and demodectic

His owner said that Dobby had no fur due to a ‘type of non-contagious mange’. Mange is a skin disease caused by mites and dogs can be affected by two types – sarcoptic and demodectic. 

Sacroptic mange (also known as canine scabies) is the most common type of the two and is highly contagious. Demodectic mange is fairly rare and only passed between a mother and her puppies. 

In most cases, demodectic mange (also known as red mange) doesn’t develop and healthy immune systems keep it dormant. 

However, in rare cases, when immunity is compromised, the parasites may take hold and the disease could develop.

What is demodectic mange? 

Mange is a skin disease caused by mites and two types can affect dogs, sarcoptic and demodectic. 

Sarcoptic mange (also known as canine scabies) is the most common of the two and is highly contagious. 

Demodectic mange is fairly rare and is only passed between a mother and her puppies. 

It is also known as red mange and most dogs have the mites in small numbers. However, in most cases, the disease doesn’t develop.

Healthy immune systems will deep the disease dormant but, in rare cases when immunity is compromised, the parasites may take hold and the disease could develop. 

The condition is not thought to be contagious to other animals and humans. 

It can take three forms in dogs: 

  • Localised: Scaly bald patches can form on the dog’s face and is common among puppies. 
  • Generalised: More parts of a dog’s body are affected by the patchy, infected skin. Secondary infections can make the condition very itchy and your dog may smell. 
  • Demodectic Pododermatitis: This is when the condition affects just the paws but it can be hard to treat and diagnose. Bacterial infections usually develop with this condition and the infection can often run deep through the tissue. 

Generalised demodectic mange affects dogs under the age of 18 months that have an immune defect. 

In up to half of these cases, the immune system recovers and is able to suppress the parasites. When generalised demodectic mange occurs in older dogs, it is an indication of a potential underlying problem affecting immunity. 

Treatment depends on the type of condition, but they may be prescribed medication, topical creams and/or medicated baths.
