Muffin the blind, 13.5-year-old toy poodle and his ingenious owner Silvie Bordeaux have come up with an amazing way to help blind dogs navigate the world easily and confidently. The Muffin’s Halo is a halo-like ring suspended above a blind dog’s head that warns him when he’s about to bump into an obstacle.
Since the prototype was developed for muffin himself, it has been adopted for dogs of different sizes and in different colors as well. Silvie hopes to see the product in shelters across the nation, where it would give blind dogs a better chance at being adopted.
In kill shelters, blind dogs are often the first to go because people avoid adopting dogs with health issues
