Why is my golden retriever puppy's new hair look so thin and short?

Hi, people. My very cute golden retriever Copper and I live in Chicago. He just started loosing his baby hair about 2 weeks ago. But the new hair that came out is coarse but very thin and short! He is getting these signature golden retriever hair like the brush-like hair behind each leg and the wavy chest hair. But they are like one inch long only. People think he's lost weight because the hair makes him look scrawny. It's been more than a week, should his hair fill out by now? I don't want to give him another shower cus I worry he's gonna loose a lot of hair like he always does! Please help stressed out mom!

Don't worry, he's just losing his puppy fur and it will soon grow back. They always look skinny when they lose their coats and it takes a couple of months to grow back.



My male pup looked like a string bean about a month ago because his hair was coming out in handfuls but now it's coming back and is beginning to get nice and thick again.



Never be tempted to give him more food when they are going through this shedding phase because once the hair grows they will look normal again



Keep brushing him to remove all the dead hair and it should return to its former glory in about 6/8 weeks..

Most likely it's just a stage in your pups life.



Remember yourself when you hit puberty.

He's just a puppy this is normal it will start growing out soon dont worry

I would say give it time and it will grow out like it is supposed to. It takes awhile for their hair to grow in long and thick. Be patient!

Do you think your hair just magically grew in looking like it does now when you were a baby? Exactly.



And, a week? Hair takes more time to grow than that.

The other answers below all sound right - either that or you've bought a labrador by mistake!

because its a new born wait a little long

It will probably be at least 2 to 3 coat changes before he gets his full thickness coat.

Don't stress over this. All long-coated dogs blow their puppy coat and the new hair takes months to come in to the adult length. Don't over wash the little thing, dogs only need a bath when they're filthy or stink. There are natural oils in the coat that will help with the hair growth. Always use a dog shampoo, don't use people shampoo. Also, dogs blow undercoat in the spring and fall, this is why you're seeing so much hair coming out.

Golden Retrievers shed moderately in the winter and summer, and heavily in the spring and fall.

LOL he's lossing his puppy fur and now his adolsent coat is coming in! It will take months for his coat to come in and get somewhat back to normal, then he will shed that too before you even see his adult coat!



You need pacients and he needs to grow up alot more!
