Miniature Australian Shepherd Puppy Hates the Sun
Our 11-week-old Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy seems to have trouble in the sun—not from being too hot, but he actually seems bothered by or afraid of the light?
He will only go in the shade on walks and sits down, squints, and barks if he can only be in the sun. He isn’t at a genetic risk for eye issues, but wondering if anyone else has experienced this "fear" of sunlight. Wondering if this is something I should ask my vet about or if he will grow out of it with exposure!
