Default Extremely Coarse Hair Near the Rear

Hi everyone! First post. My recently adopted 1 yr GSD, Kaina, has been a great addition to the family. I noticed when we got her a few months ago that her fur near her rear was an inch or two longer than anywhere else on her body, and much drier and coarser. I quickly attributed this to shedding as it was starting to heat up in my area, but now that her full summer coat appears to be in the strange hair remains. I know that sometime in her past, she had mange to an unknown degree. I don't know how much of an impact this is. I would like to know if there is something differently I should be doing in regards to diet and nutrition, or otherwise. I currently feed her TOTW.

Thanks!
