Hi ... total puppy cutness :inlove: ...
Have you taken them in to the vets for the puppy shots? That is where I would start with the questions about the skin issue. They have simple test to see what is causing it. And with your pups being only 8 weeks they should really be starting their puppy shots.
There is also a 'HEALTH' section on the board, have you looked there for some answers about the skin?
Good Luck and WELCOME TO THE BOARD ~ Deb & Tonka

Get that puppy to the vet, it looks like some sort of worm or bug that burrowed under the skin.

Welcome! I would take the puppy to the vet asap.

I actually live about 40 min from Memphis, TN!

Welcome. Cute pups you have, although they need to be at the vet ASAP. The most common skin problem for dogs is Demodectic Mange. My male had it when we first adopted him, easy to treat but it takes a while for the hair to grow back in. Either, get him to the vet.

Cute pups! What are their names? What got you interested in pit bulls? Did you get yours from a shelter? Do you have any other pets?

Part of being a responsible pet owner/breeder is being able to provide vet care if needed you will have to arrange time to take these guys to the vet skin conditions like that usually require immediate treatment or the problem gets worse and spreads. Please get those 2 to the vet A.S.A.P and get their shots dwormer's and have them to a skin scrape to see what's causing the problem. Good luck with them keep us updated :)
