If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
I adopted two blind cocker spaniel puppies brother and sister. I need help on how to care for these babies. They are double merle and they could also be deaf. I want to make them part of our family but wanted to know if anyone that has had a puppy like this has any advice. Thanks and don't worry they will be fixed at 6month of age I know you never want to breed merle to merle but the breeder didn't know that until he had that litter. The other puppies were fine as far as we know.
Bless you for adopting these babies! Be sure to read the wonderful information and tips here

One of our previous moderators is Karen Anderson. Her website is at the end of these tips and she is most helpful with blind and deaf dogs. I think your two will fare even better than the average deaf blind because they have each other. Please post a picture and after you've had time to absorb some of the information, don't hesitate to ask questions.
You might also want to join any of several Yahoo groups for blind and deaf dogs. As an owner of a blind dog before she passed, I can say that they are only limited by their owners' lack of commitment and I know yours will not have that problem.
