SAYING she's a reputable breeder means nothing. Were both parents health tested? Have you SEEN the results (or the recorded results on OFA)?
If it's just missing pigment around her eye, it's not correct, but it also is not a health concern. What bothers me is that it looks like the HAIR is missing around the eye and the skin looks irritated. Typically, with dogs lacking pigment, the very edge of the eyelid will be pink, but they still have a normal amount of hair around the eye.
I know you say you love this puppy, but you haven't even MET her yet. You really love the IDEA of a puppy. It is as easy to fall in love with a well bred, healthy puppy from a reputable breeder as a poorly bred, sickly puppy from a back yard breeder. And the second can end up costing you MUCH more in vet bills (AND heart-ache!) in the long run. Buyer beware!
