Wow, her eyes are really wonky. Do you have a contract that specifies she is guaranteed ? I'm afraid those eyes would be a bit of a worry to me. I'd want a clean check from the vet before a commitment. Hydrocephalus comes to mind, although she doesn't have the typical look of that. Perhaps it is just the picture. Do you have any other pics of her? What does she weigh?

I don't want to upset you either, but she definitely looks hydro to me...as Tracy, Brody's momma said. Their eyes can be a tish wonky, but definitely not THAT much...

Also...that puppy in those pictures isn't 9 weeks old, there's no way IMO. I don't know a WHOLE lot, but either it was premature or is underdeveloped...it MAX looks 5ish weeks old to me.

Zarie is blind in one eye....the left eye...she has been vet checked and checked out fine...I think the eye muscle in the right might be weak....she weighs 8 ozs.....thanks for your input but we are not overly concerned...we have a chihuahua who is blind in one eye...and are quite used to people thinking she looks a bit ' wonky "

Well if its blindness, that's totally different then. That isn't life threatening...I think we often worry when eyes are pushed to the sides and the head appears large it can be hydrocephalus which is deadly, and not altogether uncommon in a chihuahua. It makes more sense now.

I am sorry but you are totally wrong...I know the exact day she was born...her breeder is a dear friend of mine.... she vet checked out fine on Aug 31st...and is meeting all her milestones....

I think she has Hydro. Her eyes are a classic sign. Blindness does not push the eyes out to the side that way If not that, other health issues. She can be 9 weeks old though. All of mine looked "underdeveloped" at that age.
