    Our next door neighbor breeds dogs and sells them as “designer” mixes. I don’t care for it, but I can’t really stop them. Today my husband was chatting with Neighbor and learns their latest litter, born just two days ago, was a disaster. They had multiple problems with it, but the one that brings me here is the pup they had born with its eyes already open. According to Neighbor, their vet has said pup will definitely be blind and may need her eyes removed when she gets a bit older. Neighbor said they were going to preemptively put her down and my husband stepped in to say that we would give her a home when she is weaned to keep her from being euthanized unnecessarily. So now there is a 48-hour-old blind puppy we have promised to care for when she’s weaned and I have no idea where to start. Neighbor has agreed to allow us to come start handling her when she hits a few weeks old, so she will know our scent. Is there anything else we can do/should do to prepare ourselves, our house, and our existing dog to be the best home possible for this little girl?
