  Does a one-eyed dog need any special care in terms of its' missing?
Hello, I am considering adopting a two year old Shih Tzu that is missing one eye. Apparently her previous owner was abusive and neglectful and she got an ulcer in her left eye and it had to be removed.

What kind of special care might it's one eye need? Will it that eye socket or keep it closed?

Will the dog have issues because it was abused?

Most of the time vets sew the socket closed to keep from it getting any type of infection in that area. The working eye should not need any special care.
There's ofter issues with dogs that have been abused. You need to work slowly with the dog at first and see how it responds to you. I have seen dogs that are fear biters and dogs that end up as loving partners and everything in between. Taking your time is the key..

There is two ways this could go personality issue wise.

1.)She could be the most loving, grateful dog you've ever met because she knows you'll take care of her.
OR
2.)She'll be scared and not even want you to be close to her. In that case it takes alot of time and patience to get her to personality 1(stated above).


I'm not really sure about the eye, The vet may have sewn the eye shut so it can't . I'd ask your vet.
