In brief: Get it checked out

Dog hair doesn't cause spots, but a fungal infection could be carried by a dog and cause white spots.
See your doctor for an examination. Be well.

you did not do a very good job of describing the white spots. Where are they and are they scaly or flaky? That makes a big difference in determining what they are

In brief: A dog does not

cause white spots on skin.
These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Sometimes lab testing or biopsy is necessary.
