I am new to basset ownership. My puppy won't come home until the 27th, BUT i am worried about his eyes. He looks cross-eyed. The breeder doesn't appear worried about it and says they'll straighten as his vision strengthens....but I'm not convinced. None of her previous litters didn't have this issues, her pups are gorgeous. Someone more versed in the breed please tell me I'm overthinking this.
Try not to worry too much. My AKK also looked cross-eyed for a short while before he was old enough to come home with me, and his eyes are 100% fine. I agree that you should just wait it out. If the pup still looks cross-eyed when it's almost time to take him home, then you can reconsider, but it'll likely be okay.

Talk to your vet , See if there is a vet clinic in your area or your state that specializes in eyes , may be the place that breeders go to get their eye certifications for AKC, call them about your concerns. The other is your state Vet college. Could help to ease your concerns
