There are breeds that naturally have similar mottled patterns on their coats, but there are also several pathogenic causes. Is the skin under the spots red, inflammed or flaky?

Hi!

no he skin is fine underneath, she’s not itching either. It looks like her fur is becoming lighter for some reason but I’m not sure what’s causing it.

it also seems like the fur that’s changing is softer

With a recent adoption, it could be as simple as new hair growth coming in smoother because of better nutrition, or losing some of their winter coat if they're coming in from living primarily outside.

Oh I see. It could be, and most probably change in diet I’m guessing.
Thanks for the help. I’m glad she’s not itching so it can’t be a skin thing. Thanks for your help

Can you provide more information about the pattern you've noticed on your recently adopted dog's fur? Are there any specific symptoms or behaviors that you've noticed in addition to the pattern on their fur? It may be helpful to include a description of the pattern (e.g. color, shape, size) and where it is located on the dog's body. Additionally, it would be helpful to know if this is a new development or if the pattern has been present since you adopted the dog. This information can help me provide you with a more detailed answer.

Hi!

Iv added a picture with my query but it’s almost like a lighting strike on her side. The “lighting strike” is a lighter colour than the rest of her fur.
It hasn’t been present when she was adopted. It’s been about a little bit over a month when this started happening. And no actual behavioural changes. She seems fine. I’m wondering if it could be change in diet
