From his foster: Whibbles Magoo is a 12-week-old male Australian shepherd who was born blind and deaf. Whibbles currently weighs about 10 lbs. Whibbles is a brilliant pup who does not let his lack of vision and hearing stop him from being a happy, playful, and loving pup.
He is so incredibly smart! He already knows sit, shake, down and up. He’s incredibly food motivated and willing to learn. Whibbles came from working stock and has lots of herding instinct so we are looking for an adopter who knows the breed and would enjoying working and training him so he can use his natural skills, both body and mind.
