Red Muzzle

Hello! My Chihuahua, Chevy, is light tan in color, and i noticed about a week ago that his skin is all red around his muzzle!!! It doesn't seem to bother him at all. I never see him scratch at it or rub his face on anything and there are no sores of any kind, but i still think its kind of odd. Anyone else see this in their light colored dogs?

It could be any number of things from an allergy reaction to demodex or even sunburn. I would take him to the vet for a skin scrape that will tell them exactly what it is you are dealing with and what treatment needs to be done
