HI, MY DAUGHTER WENT TO A ANIMAL SHELTER WHERE WE LIVE AND THEY HAD GOT A AUSTIALIAN SHELPERD IN THAT HAD 8 PUPPIESS. THEY ARE ALL ABOUT 3 POUNDS BUT ONE RUNT WAS SO SMALL SHE WAS NOT EVEN 1/2 POUND AND WAS DYING. THE DOG WENT AND GOT THE RUNT AND CARRIED IT TO MY DAUGHTER AND SET IT DOWN AT HER FEET AND PUSHED THE PUPPY TOWARD MY DAUGHTER. THATS ALL IT TOOK, MY DAUGHTER BROUGHT THE TINY PUPPY HOME AND CARED FOR HER. SHE IS NOW A MONTH OLD AND GROWING. WE ARE VERY WORRIED ABOUT HER EYES. WE THINK SHE MAY BE BLIND. WE HAVE TAKEN HER TO THE VET WHERE THEY SAID WITH HER BEING STILL SO SMALL THEY WOULD HAVE TO WAIT AND WITH HER EYE COLOR BEING THE BLUE IT WAS HARD FOR THEM TO TELL RIGHT NOW. THEY SAID THEY WERE STILL DEVELOPING FOR ABOUT ANOTHER MONTH. HOW WOULD WE KNOW BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT COME TO US AND WE ARE STILL HOLDING HER OR CARRYING HER AROUND EVERYWHERE BECAUSE SHE IS SO LITTLE AND RUNS INTO STUFF. PLEASE HELP OR TELL US WHAT TO DO FOR OUR LITTLE DAISY MAE. THANKS SO MUCH...

Awww... she's running into stuff? She could have a sight problem. If she is a merle with no colored hair around her eyes, there is a possibility of blindness. Having blue eyes doesn't mean there is a better chance of blindness though. Just like people with blue eyes aren't predisposed to blindness more than brown eyed people. If she is only a month old, her eyes have probably only been open for a week or so, and their eyesight is never real clear in the beginning. Give her a little more time, then by 6 weeks, if there is no improvement, take her to the vet. Even if blind, she can do just fine, especially if you get her a companion dog to be her guide. You would be amazed at how intuitive mini aussies or aussies are when it comes to helping ailing buddies.
