Hair loss or patches (alopecia) can be due to multiple reasons in dogs . Photographs or closer examination will be required to accurately diagnose and treat . Considering the age of the puppy and the stated position of the patches your veterinarian may need to take a skin scraping to rule out demodectic mites microscopically.
