puppy question

I found a yellow AKC yellow lab male puppy that is vet checked and healthy except that it was born with just one eye. My question is will I be able to hunt him? He really alert and plays with his littermates like nothing is wrong. Like i said the vet said he was healthy other than that. Also, is the being born with one eye a trait that could possibly be passed on if I decide to breed him?

Why would you even entertain the thought of breeding a puppy born with one eye?? If breeding is something you see for yourself down the road, you should start off with the best you can, not with something with a known handicap. As far as hunting, as long as you're fair to the dog with what it's actually able to see and/or you teach it to handle, I think it would be doable.
