HI

She could be hydro as it does not necessarily cause outward pointing eyes but more often what are termed "sunset' eyes where the eye appears to be pushed down too low in the socket from the intracranial pressure. My son hs hydrocephalus & that is how his eyes appeared before his initial surgery to partially relieve the pressure.

Having said that though, her head doesn't look too bad so she may not be hydro & could just have weak focal muscles at this point.

Good luck with whatever you decide :) Special needs kids and puppies are just as wonderful and loving as everyone else :)

lol I know, I adopted 7 special needs kids, some more special than others. And about half my dogs are special needs, so I agree with your statement 100%. :) Yeah, I looked for the sunset eyes and didn't see it. I am hoping she is ok, she looks so sweet.

I know you know it Pam. I love seeing the updates of your special little guys :) I just like to put it out there to celebrate my wonderful son and all the other beautifu,l special kids I have come to know since he came into our lives... What an amazing person you are to adopt and care for all those babies, skin & fur alike :hello1:

I sure hope that little baby is still there when you get to the puppy farm. I am crossing everything for you! She is a little stunner, I have a very soft spot for black chis.

She doesn't "appear" to have hydro. Of course that's just going by what I can see. Just looks quite young. Maybe 6 weeks old, to me.
