You might want to have your vet check the dogs thyroid. My pug always seemed hot and sweaty, he bit himself as if he itched everywhere all the time. He needed daily medication but he was just fine for the next 12 years that I was blessed to have his company. Worth a shot. Good luck to you and your doggie

Animals that have thin damp skin are amphibians. Amphibians like frogs, toads, and newts have that type of skin.

Most lizards have dry skin. Their skin would only be moist if they lived in a damp environment.

Organs that react to touch or contact. Get it? Tactile!? The skin is the only tactile organ we have to my knowledge. Cats and dogs have whiskers.

One of my dogs has pink skin, the other has grey! Don't know if this is what they are supposed to be but they are very healthy. ANSWER: Dogs have various skin colors, just as people do. It does appear that most light coated dogs have darker skin colors, and most dark coated dogs have lighter skin. My black dachshund has pink skin, and my tan dachshund has black skin.

Pink skin on dogs can be caused by dermatitis. Dermatitis is a skin condition that is caused by fleas.

AnswerYes, Muslims can touch dogs. Nowhere in the Quran is touching or owning dogs forbidden. Some believe that dogs are unclean and should not be kept indoors, but can still be kept as guard dogs, sheep dogs, hunting dogs, guide dogs, etc.AnswerIt may appear in their society that they cannot touch dogs due to their religion. This is in fact incorrect. If you actually study the Quran (their bible) it in fact states nothing about the ability to not touch or pet dogs in any way. Therefore we can take from this, that this is how the society has developed over time. So one person may not have liked dogs and said it was in the Quran to avoid any disturbance. This then passed through the generations until many, many Muslims believe that they cannot touch dogs.they can lol :)I am a Muslim and we are allowed to touch dogs, however we have to wash our hands every time we touch them.
