Blind Dog Bounces Back With This Invention. This Brought Tears To My Eyes.
This cute four year old Corgi Basil was found abandoned, hungry and blind in Leeds, England.
When Basil was found by rescuers, he couldn’t run more than a few feet without bumping into trees or posts. It is not known how he came to be blind, but it is thought he may have been abandoned by his owner because of his disability.
Now he can move around again after learning how to use a new invention from the US called ‘Muffin’s Halo’. The device/support is attached to his body with a harness and a pillow, which is fashioned to look like angel wings. The ‘halo’ is designed to be slightly longer and wider than the wearer and when it touches an object, it puts pressure on Basil’s shoulders, teaching him to turn away.
The foster carers says that they’re trying to find a permanent place for Basil.
