When Silvie Bordeaux witnessed her poodle Muffin bumping into walls and falling down the stairs, she knew she had to help him cope with going blind.
After failing to find any aids on the market, Silvie invented her own called Muffin’s Halo, appropriately named as it literally looks like an angelic halo.
Muffin’s Halo features a lightweight copper tube that encircles the wearer’s head, preventing the dog’s nose or head from collision. Not only does this device make blind dogs look adorable, it also boosts their self-confidence and quality of life.
Silvie also wants to help blind dogs in shelters find homes by founding Second Chances for Blind dogs, a non-profit organisation that donates Muffin’s Halos to shelters.
