    Default One Eyed Dog ?

    I've read posts on 3 legged dogs and their performance, was curious as to how well a one eyed dog can do in the field ?

    Thanks

    That's a broad question. They can be excellent upland dogs. For Field Trials, if they are completely blind in one eye, depth perception can be an issue.

    Honor has a scar in one eye, but obviously he still became a Field Champion. there was a dog named Timex that had partial vision in one eye, and went to the nationals.
