I got my dog Deuce from the shelter when he was 4 weeks. I was an ACO so I took him home to bottle feed him. The entire litter ended up dying at 2 months old. The vets all said it was from bad genitics. Well Deuce just turned 6 months old. I noticed some bumps on his chest a few days ago but they looked just like ant bites. Deuce is completely deaf because both parents were merle catahoulas. When you breed two merles you get dogs that have a lot of white in them. White can sometimes mean the dog is deaf because the same cells that produce hearing also produce pigment. So this morning I found him like this.They said that all the puppies from his litter looked like this when they died. There was a hole in his skull and there was puss on his brain.

Poor Deuce.  I'm so sorry he had to be put to sleep.  You have some wonderful pictures of him and I know you will cherish those and your memories of him.

 Awe, sorry. Was he sick with some kind of disease? Yes, white can produce deafness.
