Back Story
Ellie Lucille is a mellow senior Cocker Spaniel Mix. We fostered her for the local rescue and then adopted her. She had an eye removed when we fostered her. We believe her to be completely blind now. Ellie Lucille had almost no vision a few months ago. She walks into walls or anything that is the way. Walks are the most dangerous for her as she is like a bull dog that just wants to plow forward. Ellie loves her walks! She is fearless outside and we are all on edge worried about her. Thank you for your kind consideration, Angels.

“Oh my, we received our Muffin’s Halo for Sophie and it’s just perfect! As a little background: Sophie became blind practically overnight from SARDS, at the young age of four! She now is six, and has adjusted well. She has issues with her blindness when she’s in an unfamiliar place. This is when we will use the Halo. Sophie doesn’t seem to mind wearing it at all! Here’s a picture of my sweet girl.”

Thank You Angels,
Julie Newman, Martinez GA

Backstory
“Sophie is a very active 6 year old Doxie. She lost her sight to SARDS at the age of 4. It all happened within just a few days. Sophie has adjusted well, but struggles in unfamiliar surroundings. I really feel a Muffin’s Halo is the key to helping her make the best of the situation. Like all pet parents I only want my little girl to happy. Thank you for your kind consideration, Angels. We appreciate it so much.”

“Thanks sooo much for donating a halo for LIBR foster, Kado. We truly appreciate it, xo”

Debra Bosse, Lewiston ME

Backstory
“Kado is an easy going 12 1/2 year old English Bulldog. I am the State of Maine representative for Long Island Bulldog Rescue. I do long term foster care. Kado and his sister Harley came to me about 2 1/2 years ago. Both were severely neglected. Lived in a basement all their lives. Never saw a vet. Both covered with fleas. They had severely infected ears. Harley had tumors so big that she passed away 2 months after I got her. Kado’s eyes were so infected he couldn’t open them. He had to have one eye removed. We’ve tried everything for his other eye but he is completely blind now. He had a neuter and spleen removed. So the poor fella has really been through it. A Muffin’s Halo would be a very special gift for this lovely little guy. ”

Thank you♡

The McCormick’s

 Backstory
“Tootsie is a 12 1/2 year old Mini-Schnauzer. My parents live in Florida. Mom passed away this Spring on April 24, 2017 and Tootsie was her baby. My Dad is 81 and we feared Tootsie would be a danger to him because she is blind. We were afraid she would trip him. So, we took her in at our home in RI. She has lived her whole life in Fl and pretty much knew her way around. Poor thing bangs into everything at my house. She is not active now with the blindness. She is timid and scared. Not herself at all. When I saw this halo, I thought … this is the solution!! We have a 12 1/2 year old Corgi and his eyesight is perfect. So seeing her this way is heartbreaking.”

Gracie

Backstory
Gracie is a mellow 11 year old Boston Terrier. She has been going blind since she was very young. Gracie lived the first 10 years of her life with a family in Iowa. I’m not sure why they had to put her up for adoption but it probably had to do with her blindness. I adopted Gracie less than a year ago and we’ve become great pals. She’s a sweetie pie and she loves going for walks and running on the leash. She loves to play with toys. Gracie is the most playful dog I’ve ever had!

The problem is sometimes she gets too excited and bumps into things and hurts herself. The vet says that her eyes are very fragile. She has had 3 eye injuries in the time that I have had her despite us being very careful. If she keeps injuring her eyes they won’t get better and she will have to have surgery to have them removed or be put to sleep. So this is a last-ditch effort to protect Gracie’s eyes. We especially love the butterfly halo! Thank you for your consideration.

Update

Thank you all so much for helping my dog! The assistance couldn’t have come at a better time. I had a short gap in employment and just started a job. I was transferred too and Gracie has just gotten over an eye infection caused by being poked in the eye accidently. We just got the halo on the mail today I am so excited for her! This is the first picture of Gracie trying on her new halo! She’s still getting used to it but it seems to help.

Itty Bitty has so much confidence now with his halo.He used to sleep much of his day away before seemingly depressed now he is up and on the go so alert now and able to go outside now with his halo. His life is so much more meaningful for him now all thanks to Muffin’s Halo.

Thanks so much

Backstory

Itty Bitty is a 9 year old Chia/Pom. When he was about 4 years old he was diagnosed with detached retinas. Itty was doing pretty well with getting around until I recently moved this past year and now my poor baby is bumping into everything. I know he would benefit from a Muffin’s Halo. Please consider us. Thank You, Angels,

Look how adorable Judd looks in his Red Muffin’s Halo!

Judd got his Muffin’s Halo thanks to Geno!

Backstory

“Judd was an 11th hour rescue from Greenville, South Carolina. Neglected, abused, and malnourished, he flourished into a happy, healthy, and much adored part of our family. Last year, just one month after moving, Judd was diagnosed with diabetes and lost his sight soon thereafter. He has battled several bouts of illness but is finally on the right track to getting regulated and learning to navigate the world. He is even starting to slowly explore our favorite trails again! A halo would give him the security and confidence he needs to make even more strides. Thank you for your innovative idea & kindness! 💛”

“Hi. This might be one of the most difficult messages I’ve ever sent, so I’m going to keep it short.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for giving Egon a second chance. We were heart broken when we went to the vet to discover he was blind. No one wants to see their baby bump into walls to gauge where they are headed.

We received his halo last Thursday. We put it on him right away and after a few adjustments, he was off to the races. We cried tears of joy. And I can’t thank you and Geno enough for that. The added photos are of that day.

Unfortunately, the next day, seemingly out of nowhere, we discovered a large mass or abscess on the side of Egon‘s face along with facial paralysis on the same side. We went to the emergency vet hoping for antibiotics and a follow up appointment only to be greeted with the worst. He was just too sick and we had to say good bye.

We didn’t have him for even a year, but I’ll never forget him. And I’ll never forget you for giving him a few days of peaceful, stress free walks. We were planning on donating his halo to the rescue we adopted him from, boston buddies of southern California. We felt this was the right course of action long before he passed since they did so much for him and they almost always have one or more dog(s) with vision impairment. If you would prefer us to send the halo back, we understand and know it will go to an equally wonderful home. But for right now, as you can imagine, it’s in hiding as I can’t bare to look at his second chance. Soon.

Thank you for this product and all you do. If I can help you at all from South OC and no car, please let me know.”

Backstory

“Thank you Geno, and Muffin’s Halo, this is super kind and I appreciate anyone who reads Egon’s story.
This is our sweet boy, Egon. We adopted him last summer a few days before his 13th birthday from a local Boston Terrier rescue group. While in the care of the rescue, Egon was diagnosed and treated for cancer on the side of his face, near his eye. Unfortunately, his stiches were super itchy and while healing, he ended up scratching his eye causing a corneal ulcer. By this point, we were already planning on adopting him and had no intentions to say no now. The surgery went well and healing was slow, but successful. After another surgery to close up his eyelid and remove an ulcer from the other eye, we were told he likely could see “some” out of his left eye, but his right eye would be his “good” eye. Luckily, he never slowed down, loved walks, car rides, and playing with his dog brother. Until about a week ago when we noticed a behavior change on walks. He started bumping into walls, missing steps, and became intimidated by curbs. We wasted no time in taking him to the vet where we learned he has cataracts in his eyes and they are advancing rapidly, so quickly that it seems he was blind almost overnight. It has been so difficult to watch him bump into a wall, or even worse, find him confused in another part of the house because he can’t find us. To make matters a tad more difficult on Egon, he’s very hard of hearing, leaving his sense of touch to be his main navigator. We are hoping to fit him for a Muffin’s Halo to help him gain his confidence back and keep him safe while on walks.”

“So thankful for the Angels who donated the muffins halo for my Jayden! Got in the mail beginning of week. Jayden is learning to adjust and trust a little more. She is starting to wag her tail now. So happy that she is coming out of her depression and she can get around without getting hurt. God Bless all for this halo and the ones who help send them to all fur babies in need. Thank you so much.”

Melissa T. & Jayden💜💛

Backstory

“Two weeks ago I noticed Jayden wasn’t acting right. Was confirmed by vet 4-25-17 she has progressive retinal atrophy. She has been hurting herself bumping into things and it is breaking my heart so much. Just trying to get her some help. I cant afford to get one for her at the moment.  I would like for her to be able to move around and not be so scared and confused as she is now.”

Rocky

Update

We received Muffin’s Halo for Rocky and we are extremely grateful to have such a quality product that fits him perfectly and is so well made. Rocky lost his remaining eye in January to painful glaucoma and was spending most of his time on beds and sofas so that he would not injure himself. Thanks to the “halo”, he now walks freely in the house and in the yard without hurting himself. I’ve enclosed some photos. We have also expressed our gratitude to Southwest Snort Savers who donated the halo to our Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue boy.

Thank you so much for your compassion and generosity to our sweet Rocky.

Backstory

Rocky is in a foster home through a rescue group. He has one eye with a cataract, graft and now glaucoma. He lost the other eye to an infection after his graft surgery. We are hoping he can get a Muffin’s Halo to help him.
