After 3 months of waiting on corgi waiting lists, I got the call to come look at a litter last weekend. I was so excited! The woman who called me is a very reputable breeder who has shown dogs for over 30 years, and corgis for 15-20. There are videos of her showing he corgis on YouTube, and she is a long-standing member of the PWCCA. She does extensive health clearances of the parents (CERF, eyes, DM), and also has the puppies eyes checked by a vet before they leave for their new homes.
I am looking for a real cuddlebug, and there were 2 females in particular that she thought would be a good fit for me. I fell head over heels for one of them. All puppies are cute, but there was something about this female that just tugged at my heart. However, when I got home and looked at her pictures, I noticed that her left eye (the one on the right in the pictures) seems to have a lot of white in it on one side. It's almost as if it's wandering or something? I didn't notice this in person, but I did in the pictures, which I'm attaching here. I have read so many tales of woe on here that I want to be careful. But I also don't want to be too OVERLY cautious and scare myself out of what might just be a minor cosmetic flaw in a really terrific dog. I also don't want to pay an arm and a leg and have health issues later that I could have avoided had I been a little more careful.
Have you guys seen this before? Is this cause for concern? Is this something she might grow out of? Am I obsessing over nothing?? Help!!
My female's eye is just like that. It's more noticeable in pictures. I don't think there is anything wrong with her eyes nor has it ever made me question whether there was something wrong with her. I just assumed that eye was a little lazy. I wouldn't worry over it, unless you notice her eye actually wandering around or the whites of her eyes become more noticeable. If you have any doubts, speak with the breeders. I'm sure she has seen this a few times with her pups and may be able to help you feel more at ease.
No problem lol. I thought it was cool my girl had a lazy eye since I have one too lol. Now if we could get our eyes to go in sync, we would have some very interesting photos.
I know nothing about this, so I probably should not be commenting...
BUT.... I would talk to your breeder. You have to feel comfortable asking your breeder for any advice you need.
I thought it looked like her 3rd eyelid in the pictures not the actual eye. Again I am no pro.
Depending on how the dog is moving its eye, you will see some white. Funny it's always the same eye. Maybe she has a bit of a lazy eye? I know a lot of kids have one and most outgrow it. Maybe the same is true in pups? I am just guessing.
I would ask the breeder, in a friendly way. "Oh, she's so cute! Hey, I noticed in her pics that I can always see some white in her left eye and not in her right. I know so little about puppy development. Can you tell me why that is?"
Chances are she'll have a good explanation for you. When we got Jack, the breeder had two litters, days apart. One was rough-and-tumble, one was very gentle and the pups were two-thirds the size. Turns out one of the litters needed to be hand-fed (dam had a problem and couldn't nurse them) and so they were handled a lot more. She said they would catch up in size eventually. Good breeders will answer your questions and are happy to have you ask!
Personally I wouldn't worry about it, but if you have any doubts definitely mention it to the breeder.
I don't know what to say. Hard to tell since neither is a straight on shot...One of Seanna's eyes has a little more white than the other...not as much, but some. I'd call your vet and ask their opinion. Personally, if my heart was telling me to do it, then I would do it. God brings animals into your life for one reason or another...my feeling is nothing is a guarantee. The dog can look perfect, check out perfect, and still cost you thousands of dollars before it's all said and done.
