Watch the documentary Dog by Dog on Netflix - Amish/Mennonite Farmers are very much involved in puppy mills.

Hopefully if the Amish withdraw from society more people will learn from their example and this will likely cause the collapse of Toronto housing market.
I even saw the dad and mom dog so I thought no problem...

The vet thinks it was actually brother/sister that got mated. :|

What's wrong with your dog? Luxating patella?

I noticed she was bumping into walls and such so I took her into the vet..

Found out dog has heredity visual impairment problem which will require surgery.

I think around 12 months ago?? The dog's rib area got all big and swollen like a huge acne, spent a lot resolving that..

Around that time I thought about giving it away too but decided not to.. Good thing I didn't, I would feel bad for the new owner

Lot of this is probably on RFD somewhere

Sounds like it could be neurological as well.

I'd personally pass on the surgery.

Out of curiosity, what specifically is the surgery?

I'm sure her lack of vision wouldn't inhibit her life :) she has a very caring owner, and she's so young; she'll
Quickly adapt.

I would go with the surgery for such a young dog. My dogs are like my children. If it could improve their life I would go for it.

Found a vet who can do monthly payments :)

She's alive :)

Surgery was for cataracts
