Wondering If My Dog Is A "Lethal White"
(Weirsdale, FL, USA)
Sam's mother with litter-1
My puppy, Sam has a lot of white on him. He has no hearing or vision problems that I can detect, but he does have an ongoing demodectic mange issue. My vet has him on meds, but it seems to be getting worse. His check-up is tomorrow and I'll see what she says about his lack of progress.
He's 8 months old and seems normal in his energy level, intelligence and love of life. His father was a blue merle, and his mother was red & white. I have a couple pictures of the mother with Sam's littermates. (there were 11 puppies!) I'm not sure if she's red or red merle. I understand that if both parents were merle, Sam would be at risk. I will include a few pictures, of Sam, and his mother with the litter. I have no pictures of the father, and the breeder never sent me any. I contacted him a few times with no luck.
I appreciate any input from more knowledgeable Aussie lovers. Thank you,
