What kind of bug is this? And should I be worried that it was stuck to my dogs chin?

I got it off of him looks like it was dead it made a crunch when I crushed it but basically turned to dust
So I assume it was completely dead before it got stuck to his chin

It鈥檚 a cicada. He鈥檚 ok:)
[@7704,KaysHealingPath] They call them chicharras in spanish. BB is right, they're harmless.

[@2939,arthurca] I had no idea they were the same thing 馃槄馃槄馃槄
[@7704,KaysHealingPath] They dry up and die anywhere, so nothing to worry about.
It鈥檚 just their shell

I have a bug app on my iphone and it says that bug is a Humpback Dung Beetle. If that is true then it is harmless.

Just a beetle. Wouldn't worry unless your dog starts showing signs of an allergic reaction

That鈥檚 just a cicada and it won鈥檛 hurt him. I have caught them many times and my cat used to catch them and eat them. The big birds also like to eat them. The shell is what remained after the cicada crawled out of it. Your dog probably saw it and went sniffing around and it crawled on him and started wiggling out to fly away.
