Default Eye infection or normal

Hi i just got my pup (Gunner) last saturday. Hes currently 13 weeks. And hes awesome, however in the morning when he wakes up, He always has crusty eyes and this morning it was more then usual with white slimmy eye stuff on his eye and eye lids. Its white, not green or brown. Doesnt really phase him. Is this normal boxers? Thanks !

His eyes are filtering all the dust and dirt in the air. So when he goes to sleep the eyes clean out all that junk and thats what the white eye junkies are. It normal, just take a damp cloth and clean his eyes every morning.

Diet can also play a roll in eye gunkies. What are you feeding him?

Does his bottom lid sag? Wyatt's are still pretty saggy, and in the mornings has white eye goop. I just wipe it off. If its colored maybe call the vet and ask if it could be an infection?

Sounds normal to me. My two also get eye crusties and eye goopies. If it's greenish or yellowish then it's more of a problem to get checked out.
