I have an almost 4 week old German Shepherd male puppy who is the youngest out of a litter of seven and I have been bottle feeding since the mother has not wanted anything to do with him from the day he was born I have noticed his now losing hair on his stomach but the area is not seem to be irritated or dry and Flaky looking so I'm just wondering if it is normal for them to lose the hair on their stomachs maybe from being wet too long since he is learning how to go to the bathroom on his own any advice would be great

Do you have a picture? Puppies don't normally have hair on their stomachs, that area is normally just skin with a bit of hair on it. Or are you meaning his entire underside where he lays?
