I found a winged bug on my dog.

Most likely it is a gnat or small mosquito. Gnats and mosquitoes are drawn to dogs, and all other warmblooded creatures, during the summer months. Try applying an insect repellent, preferably one that is waterproof, that is formulated for canines. This should help keep the insects at bay and keep your dog more comfortable.

I don't know. It might be a lady-bug... Anyway, you should do them a favor and remove the bug. (But don't kill it! )

They are not fleas, fleas do not have wings just great jumping ability. I suggest bringing your dog to the vet.

You are most likely describing a flea. Fleas fit the description. Check to see if the dog has other's on him. Use Frontline, Advantix immediately and clean your house.
