one more things. hes had this little bald spot. since i got him. it went away and i thought nothing if it. now hes got like 6. there not red, he doesnt itch, hes clean and bathed once a week. i just ordered hypoallergenic shampoo and a medicated conditioner so well see if that helps. i put antifungal on it for a few days to see if that would help and it had no effect. in the next week hell go to the vet, just so you dont worry. just wanted some thoughts

He's a pup still if I recall? Crate him when you can't watch him so that he won't be able to eat any of your stuff. As for the bald spots, could very well be ringworm which can be shared to you and anyone or animal that he comes in contact with.

Unfortunately dogs love "smelly things" (I'm not saying you're smelly, but to the dog you're undies are). I agree with BMD that if you can't watch him, crate him, and also agree that it helps to keep the undies out of reach. I do however know that many obstacles can be overcome in order to reach dirty socks and undies (My parents' dog will do anything to get them).
If the spots really aren't itchy at all, then I doubt it's ringworm, but only a vet could tell you for sure. If it is ring worm, watch out, it sucks (My dog and I were both diagnosed with it yesterday) and it is easily transmitted, so if you start to get patches like your dog, go to the Dr and the vet. It could be an allergy, but again, there would be itching with that. Does he have a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing etc?

I have a tall hamper with a lid since Peaches does the same thing. The best advise is be ever watchful of your laundry, do not present the opportunity for them to sneak anything out of the basket (tall hampers work well) and don't let them near your laundry area when you're separating colors from whites (she got sneaky and stole a few times). Training, however, is always a must, regardless of good or bad behaviour :) Good luck!

i think you said it was a min pin!!!! the boys love to eat stuff like underware i know bad little doggies, get him a good bone to chew on and also if he is a min pin they only---- need to be washed at least 3 to 4 times a year, your washing him to much talking out the oils in his skin, hope this helps i have 4 min pins.

My 10 month old pup does the same thing! She won`t go after the guys underwear even if they are obviously nasty, there must be some trace discharge (I`m guessing) in female panties that is just irresistable. She`ll go after DD`s (age 9) once in awhile, but she is always after mine if she can get them. We bought 2 cheap tall hampers so there is always something I can put them in and I haven`t lost any recently, but I`ve resigned myself to just buying cheap replacements until we can trust her. The tall hampers do work and Lola is getting much better with her "drop it", but if no one sees her right away she`s very quick at shredding.

Glad to see your post as I`d not heard of other dogs doing this.

I think (maybe I misunderstood) you are confusing not hitting with not disciplining. Even though you don't hit (which is great), you can still discipline, you know?

my mom's cat goes into their closet to sniff and lay on my step dad's undies. its very weird lol

i have a new puppy and he LOVES to chew so we got a playpen made for babies and when we cant watch him but want him near us we put him in there. he's got room to play and he doesnt feel alone. and its got potty pads in there. he seems to love it!
