Becoming blind is one of the most common fears among adults. Losing eyesight as an adult would be a terrible loss. As humans, we rely on our sight to navigate through the world, appreciate our surroundings and much, much more. Being suddenly without sight would be terrible and a challenge for you and your loved ones.

Of course, this isn’t the case in the real world, but you can imagine why pet owners (and especially soon-to-be dog owners) shy away from taking care of a blind animal. The potential burden and the added expenses have always forced shelters to put blind dogs down…

…Until now.

When inventor Silvie Bordeaux’s 13-year-old toy poodle went blind, she wasn’t willing to put her down, even though she walked into walls and fell down stairs.


Instead, Bordeaux created a halo harness that warns dogs when they’re about to bump into an obstacle.


Since it was perfected, it spread like wildfire to dogs of all ages and sizes.


It even uses a pair of angel wings at the base to make these darling dogs that much cuter to everyone.


…Although other designs are available.


Today, Bordeaux hopes to see the device in dog shelters, where it will help blind dogs get adopted.


We hope so too!

What Silvie invented can potentially save thousands of lives in the coming years. Not too bad for a day’s work.

If you want to purchase one of these for your dog, or perhaps donate one to a shelter near you, please visit her website. No dog needs to be put down for such an unacceptable reason anymore, especially with the introduction of this wonderful invention.
