This tiny 8 week old Terrier puppy came into the shelter as a stray with a sibling. Her sibling was fine, and went to another rescue.
We were asked to help Carly because something just wasn’t right with her…
She appears to be blind, and has a large bump/fluid filled area on the top of her little head.
She is in a wonderful foster home tonight, and we will keep an eye on this for now. She’s sweet and responds to sound/noise. We are not able to tell at this point if she’s blind or not, as her senses aren’t fully developed at this age.
She will see our vets for a follow up in 3 weeks for her next vaccination; sooner of course, if needed. At that time we may be able to take x-rays of her head. Doing it now won’t tell us much, as she needs a little time to grow and develop.
Please, if you are able, donate to Carly’s medical fund via PayPal below. Thank You!

Carly has been adopted! Congrats to Carly and her furever family!
Carly update from her foster mom, May 2016: Her bump is definitely not any bigger. It’s soft, but there is a protrusion where the fontanel is open. She runs and plays…no impairment except vision, so far. She is a doll!
