|Magwart||I have a totally blind dog with double-cataracts that are not operable. He's not a dog to be pitied -- he runs, chases squirrels, wrestles with other dogs, and romps at the socialization field. People often don't know he's blind unless he runs into them. He goes jogging with my DH too. He's amazing -- not special needs AT ALL. He has a different set of commands, and he needs to have total confidence in his handler, but other than that, he's just as full of spit-fire as any other young dog.|

|TAR HEEL MOM||We currently have a blind blue heeler atmy shelter. His name is Radar and he is around 2-3 years old. He is just the sweetest thing. Our vet told us that she could remove the cataracts and restore his vision but the surgery would be about 5K. We obviously don't have that kind of money. We are networking him amongst special needs groups to try to find him a home. Thanks for the video link!|

That was AWESOME and touching!!
I have a Siberian Husky that is 2Y 9M old and has juvenile cataracts. They are still "Stable" which is good! I have faith they will remain that way. I have learned a lot about hereditary, juvenile and old age cataracts.
My guess is that Dog had Hereditary cataracts where he/she was basically blind at birth.
I guess this was not a quick reply!
P.S. I grew up with and love German Shepherds! Please accept my handsome son "Capo" and I on your website! I am going to dig up some[hopefully] pictures of Baron Von Mazur!!
