I'm no vet, but looks similar to when my guy scraped his back leg against a retaining wall when he wasn't paying attention. The hair came out and he had some light scabbing.

Just keep an eye on it and if you feel its getting worse and its worrying you, you can always go to emergency care. I think you will be fine till the vet visit though.

Hello,

Having looked at the photo, the bald patch looks like it will grow back as the skin is pink and healthy. As Boxers have such short coats we tend to notice every little scuff and scrape and it can be a worry!

Our oldest Boxer has sadly lost a circular patch of fur in the same area and the skin where the hair loss occured is black and shiny, so I think as long as the skin is treated appropriately (whether it is a cut/scrape/lump or bump) it should grow back just fine. 🙂
