My German Shepherd puppy has dry skin on her nose and it's peeling. I thought maybe she's dehydrated. She drinks a lot of water, so I was wondering if it could be something more serious. She's not acting funny or anything.

I think your dog has what they call Collie's nose. It is red and peeling because it is sunburned. This is a frequent problem in long nosed dogs. Please ask your Veterinarian for any suggestion to treat her.
My Italian Greyhound has the same thing. I have been told its Hyperkeratosis. Its not painful. I put petroleum jelly or sometimes Neosporin on her nose to make it peel less. I pick off the dry skin and she does not appreciate it, but it makes her look better. :)
