Hi, JACustomer. Thanks for your question. Do you have video showing how he gets around as well as an extended duration focusing on his eyes so that I may see what you're seeing.

In many breeds, white color and breeding merles together (catahoulas are often blue leopard with blue eyes) can result in a partially to fully blind and/or deaf dog. There may be some additional testing and help that this pup needs to lead a normal life.

Also, when was his last exam with your vet?

How old is he?
