    Tubby had an umbilical hernia. They said it was fine to leave as is or we could operate to have it stitched up. We opted to have the hernia repaired when he went in for his cherry eye. What a waste of money that was lol the lunatic managed to partially tear it. Vet said its fine and no need to worry about it.

    As for the choice of puppy I say take all of them

    Well Skeet is a cutie and the umbilical hernia is no big deal as long as it is fairly small and can be fixed when he is neutered it you are going to neuter him. Ones that are bigger, say over a 1/2" you need to watch as these could let the intestines come through and could cause a problem. Most of the time they are small and do not cause a problem, and if they are small enough, they may close up on their own.

    Thank you all so so so much! I just now had the chance to log in. We should be getting our little guy next week HOPEFULLY! Our breeder is doing their final puppy check with her vet this week, and she is going to get his procedure for his hernia done next week once he's 8 weeks. She said it is typically only a few days for healing/recovery, so fingers are crossed that he's ready and we can bring him home next Friday! Ahhhhh! This has been the longest four months waiting for him. I'm taking two days off work just to make sure he's comfortable where he is, and gets used to his new little world. Totally may be overboard, butttttt I don't care. I never take a vacation anyway!

    I purchased a 7 month old EB from a breeder in July 2012. He had the umbilical hernia issue, he was operated on at an early age and he has a nice size scar on his belly. I had him checked out by a vet once I got him home and the doctor said it is nothing to worry about at all. It has NOT affected Eli in any way shape or form. He runs and plays just like any other dog. Good luck with Porter!

    Loki had a hernia too! They operated on it when he was about 12 weeks he has a scar on his belly but he hasn't had any problems since it healed all the way. Porter is such a handsome boy! Congrats

It doesn't seem to be a huge deal, but I'm glad to hear from someone who's had a puppy with it that it's really not an issue.
    Honestly, I'd ask the breeder for a discount (to pay for the additional surgery, if that's an issue) and have it done when he gets neutered instead. Bea had one and when she got spayed, the vet stitched it up at that time. I didn't ask for a discount. It's a common thing apparently.

    Putting a puppy under for surgery.... I would be concerned.

    Congrats on your new pup. Porter is a doll baby.
