We just adopted this pup from a rescue last week. Her name is Bella, about 5 months old. She is a double merle Australian Shepherd. Double merles are also known as lethal whites, they are born blind and/or deaf. Bella is blind in one eye; although we were told her hearing is perfect, we strongly believe she is deaf in one ear. She can hear sounds fine, but she is not able to tell where they originated. She is the sweetest girl, and we already love her to pieces. In the first pic, she is with our other Aussie Charlie, a 2.5-year-old goof ball.
