Introducing... JACK!

He's 9 weeks old about about 2.5 lbs (hes going to be a big boy). I evened out my 3 to 4 and have a nice 2 boys and 2 girls. Hes a handfull and is keeping me busy but extremely happy. Hes full of energy but such a sweet little guy. Hes very friendly and kisses every stranger he can! Unfort6unately, he has kennel cough and went to the vet tonight and got some medicine so he'll be feeling better soon. He has "small eye syndrome" (microthalmia) and was born with a small eye that doesnt fit properly in the socket. My vet said he thinks hes blind in that bad eye but referred me to an eye specialist so in a couple weeks i should have more information on it. Its not treatable only cosmetic but it doesnt seem to stop him at all. I love his eye patch on his good side. He looks like a little pirate :D

















excuse his dirty ear. we had just got home and i hadn't cleaned it yet

I saw him on puppyfind.com and then the breeders website. I am very glad he went to a good home. I was worried about him because of his eye. :lol:

Thank you! I wasnt planning on 4 right away but when i saw him and talked to the breeder i knew he was meant for me. I didnt actually know i was going to get him until last wednesday and on friday we drove up and got him. He was obviously badly bred :( which supports the negative opinions on merles but im not breeding him and thought i could give him a good home. The girls were a little unsure about him at first but theyre already playing with him now :D He fits in great with the crew :) I have to watch him like a hawk when we're out by the pool because im scared hes going to fall in. He already knows his name though and if hes paying attention hell come right over to me when i call him. Im going to call the eye specialist tomorrow and ask if i should make an appt now or wait until hes a little older but when i know more ill definitely let you all know :wave:

Oo I love his name!! Very fitting, especially with the eye patch.
He's such a pretty boy! That's great that he's getting along with the others, and I'm SO jealous that you have FOUR chis! :p

Very cool! I love the name also. It really does match him. And of course, I love the merles.. my merle is a little goofy but I don't think its necessarily associated with the merle thing.. he has missing toe nail on one hind foot and dew claws in the rear. one with a nail one without... strange but not noticible. Mine will be about the same size. he's 12wks now and 2.9.
