Nor does the skin show through--at all! Like I said, I keep fussing with it, trying to figure out what it is, but she doesn't notice a bit!
It's almost as if she's growing a different KIND of fur--it's short, dark reddish in color, and densely packed. I gave her a bath today & noticed while her fur was wet that there are 4 spots of dark fur on her back!

itchy or painful. Most dogs will never notice/scratch. Its the secondary infections that som'times occur that are itchy...but you can have mange without a seconday infection.
Did the dog ever see a vet for a skin scraping?
