        I am going to recommend a full blood panel at the vet and I suspect that it could be thyroid.  Most short haired dogs don’t have hair fall out unless their is an underlying problem.  My parents chih sheds all the time though and her hair sticks to everything.

              It wasnt the thyroids, the panels the ran were excellent
              and the tested for heart worms and other parsites and she was good but they did find the culprit to her cause my next door nieghbor was giving her chocolate everyday which was causing her system to shut down,so i told him give her chocolate again you will pay me 2,300.00 dollars for her for thats her value so he stopped.just glad we caught it in time
