Baci Chocolate Labrador Retriever Male 3 Months Old ID# 2533

chocolate labrador retriever Baci, an 11 week old chocolate puppy has arrived to Brookline. He is the cutest, and sweetest little pup. He has congenital cataracts, and his retinas never developed so he is blind from birth. He needs daily eye drops, but other than that, he’s a healthy happy pup! Baci is currently settling into his new foster home.  Please read his blog from the bottom up.

chocolate labrador retrieverBaci has been with us four days, and he is a joy! Such an easy puppy. He is learning outside is for potty, and has had no accidents in our house. Most of the time, he sleeps, and plays, and sleeps, and plays. When he gets real excited, the razor puppy teeth attack, but we keep toys close by to offer instead of our ankles, toes, and fingers. Fortunately, that doesn’t happen often because we all forgot how much they hurt.

chocolate labrador retrieverIf the Specialist hadn’t said he is totally blind, we would swear he can see. He follows us, puts his head up for kisses and pets. He loves our yellow Lab, Stella, and is definitely happier when she is around.

chocolate labrador retrieverWe are using the word “STOP” when he is about to walk into something that would hurt him, and that training is supposed to help protect him. When he is bigger, and learning steps, I read to say “STEP UP, STEP UP” and “LAST ONE” when you reach the top, or the bottom of the steps.

On walks, and curbs, “STEP DOWN” and “STEP UP.” The adopting family will need to follow with this training, and really read up on blind dogs. Baci is mapping the house, and we placed a mat at the door so he knows when he feels that mat, he is at the door, and that is the way outside.
