Aussie Puppy Eyes
by Macit Merey
(Ankara / Turkiye)
Hi, I live in Ankara Turkiye (Turkey) and I am planning to get this puppy from a breeder. Her parents has been genetically tested and her health seems to be ok. (offspring of a black tricolor female and blue merle male)
Unfortunately the breeder is not close to me and I only have photos through emails.
In the first photo she is about 4 weeks old and both eyes are blue and there is some brown spots in her right eye.
The second and third photo was taken when she was around 6 weeks old. The right eye turned brownish.
In all pictures the left eye (blue one) has a smaller pupil than the other. The breeder says it is an optical illusion because in her darker eye she has a brown color ring around her pupil and that's why it looks bigger. The breeder will take her to an eye test next week. We will then understand if this is a only cosmetic problem or not. Even if cosmetic, I am not sure if this will bother me in the future.
My questions are;
* What do you think when looking at the pictures? Does this happen with Aussies?
* Can this be an optical illusion?
* Is there any chance that the left (blue) eye also turn to brown (or brownish) and if yes when does that happen?
* Any further advise is very welcome.
Thanks in advance.
