I adopted Molly, a 5 year old Border Collie mix (I'm thinking golden or labrador retriever) about a month ago. She is 40 pounds. When she came into the shelter, she had been scratching like a mad dog for a while, because of fleas, so her fur was thin in some areas. Around her tail, under her legs. The flea problem has been resolved and she's not scratching anymore, but her coat still seems a bit thin in some places.
Here's some pictures of her coat: https://www.dogforum.com/members/1459...lys-coat-6770/
Sometimes the weather here goes into the 30's and 40's at night. We're in Florida, so this cold weather is usually very sudden.
It was in the low 40's this morning and I just stuck a light fleece coat on her to see how it went. For some reason, she also seemed calmer towards other dogs. (She's currently in training not to be a reactive dog.).. which I thought was interesting.
Anyway, do you think she needs a coat? If so, how cold should it be 30's, 20's. 10's? If I'm being crazy and I shouldn't be putting coats on her at all, tell me, because I'm not sure. I don't want her to feel overheated and uncomfortable either.
