When humans go blind, they’re able to prevent harming themselves while out and about by using a sensing stick or cane.
But, what is a dog supposed to do when it’s blind? How does it avoid injuries and unfortunate mishaps?
One caring, loving dog owner came up with one of the most genius animal inventions to date.
It’s a pair of angel wings with a built-in halo to prevent dogs from bumping into things while walking around.
This invention limits injuries and helps the dog navigate everyday life. The device is called Muffin’s Halo.
Meet this 13.5-year-old toy poodle named Muffin.
About two years ago, Muffin went blind.
That’s when Muffin’s owner, Silvie Bordeaux, came up with this genius invention.
It’s simply called Muffin’s Halo and it allows dogs to safely navigate everyday life.
Using this device, our furry friends are prone to fewer injuries and harmful accidents.
The halo is made out of a light-weight copper wire.
The stiff wiring attaches to the harness, which also doubles as a pair of angel wings!
Bordeaux no longer has to worry about Muffin bumping into things. Her plans for Muffin’s Halo include getting the safety device into shelters in order to help dogs awaiting adoption.
Bordeaux’s mission to get these devices into shelters will help prevent the killing of blind dogs, who due to their impairments, have not yet been adopted.
