How do I know if my dog in far sighted, or just not particularly smart?

I adopted a new dog. I've seen him watch and track squirrels from afar.

When I give him something up close even as large as a dog bowl or a bone, say if he sees it in my hand and I place it behind him, he'll lose track of it, search my hands and start smelling his way to it. He loses track of it and it genuinely takes him awhile to figure out where it is.

I'm okay with him being a lovable dum-dum. He seems to know what glass doors are, but he acts as if he's skeptical about the fact that they always stop physical objects from passing through, or maybe he just can't see them. Maybe he just believes glass only exists if you believe in it.

He also seems very awkward on stairs, like he's checking each step. He was a stray for awhile so maybe he just isn't used to house hold terrain?

We he's running he can leap over an entire bench with ease.

>I adopted a new dog.
Give your dum dum some time. I thought the shepherd mix bf adopted was retarded, but after 10 months of having him he's finally letting loose catching on to chasing squirrels and geese (partially my fault since I run after them just to see them fly). He hated stairs when we lived in our last apt, our new apt has none and he fucking loves it. Take him for hikes and see how he does there. I'm pretty sure your vet can do an eye exam if you're actually worried about it. Just sounds like he's getting to know his surroundings/territory.
