I went this afternoon to evaluate Lady and Bandit approx 8-9 month old mxm aussies. They are two very sweet kids with lots of unspent energy, they've obviously not had the amount of time spent with them needed! :((
Lady, is a red merle and the smaller (slightly) approx. 25 lbs. Her
vision is fairly good but limited. Her hearing is another story. I'd say
she probably only has about 10% hearing if that near as we could tell.
Bandit, is almost 100% white except one small black smudge on his left
side. He weighs about 28 lbs. His vision appears to be more limited than
Lady's about 50%. He wasn't running into anything but sticks close to
his sister or a person and sniffs out a treat. I believe he has more
hearing than his sister as he appears to respond to calling his name
loudly where Lady didn't.
Bandit appears to have something wrong in his hind end but I'm not sure
what. He has a funny walk. I have a girl with severe hip dysplasia in
both hips and he doesn't walk anything like her. Its kind of like he's
swinging his hips if that makes any sense? Yet his legs seem stay close
together as he walks.
Both pups are very, very friendly, sweet and loving. They just do NOT
get the attention and exercise needed. They are being kept on an
enclosed back porch and taken outside whenever the notion hits the
owners. She said Lady is broke to newspaper "all by herself" so they've
never attempted to house break them.
These two pups have been brought to the shelter more than once by AC as
they dig out of the fenced backyard because they are BORED!!! The last
time the shelter director had to talk the owners into taking them back
home because they were so full and they would help them find a rescue
for them. According to the shelter they are completely unvetted but the
owner told me they had their shots, yet I think she was bsing me.
Here are a couple pictures but I have several more. The dogs are here
local so I can help and my vet discounts everything except vaccinations
