Goodness! Poor Sumo; glad his thyroid is OK.
Is it possible that it's a mange variety? As a tiny puppy Rosie had demedex mange (passed from Mum) which caused patchy hair loss. The skin didn't irritate at all, no redness, itching scaling etc, just fell out... vet did skin scrapings to diagnose with nasty meds to treats.
Odd that all his other curiosities like the OCD and vomiting ceased too.
Good luck with his diagnosis!
Wow, poor Sumo has been going through a lot already! Hopefully it doesn't get worse, not only for Sumo but yourself as well.
At least he is getting a break from his OCD pacing even if there is no explanation.
Hope it all ends up ok for you, both of you deserve it.
Can't help but have the image of a powder puff crested staffy in my head!

Who would have thought that pooches suffer hair loss like that? You learn something new every day!
Maybe a specialist referral might be in order? The co-incidence of all his other behavioural curiosities stopping right about when he developed his Sumo-patterned baldness is pretty strange.
Fingers and paws crossed for a speedy Sumo-lution.
The OCD being a "nervy" condition, please correct me if I am wrong, could this have anything to do with him losing his coat as happens in humans. I've noticed even Molly has very little hair on her belly and none on the inside of her back legs, they are as smooth as a baby's bum.
