A golden retriever who was born blind doesn’t let her lack of vision stop her getting into mischief.

So her owner bought a device that would stop her bumping into things!

Lovey, a one-year-old retriever, is blind as a result of hydrocephalus, a brain condition, but still loves to explore in her garden and play with her big dog brothers.

To help prevent injury, her owner bought her a Muffins Halo, which prevents her from having accidents.

The accessory looks like a basketball hoop, with the metal loop protruding further than her face so that it bumps into objects before she does.

Her owner shared an adorable video to their TikTok account which showed Lovey playing in the garden and bumping into a telegraph pole with the halo on.

The video has since been viewed over 60,000 times.

One user joked: “She’s like ‘wow, I literally did NOT see that coming’”, to which her owner responded, “We make blind jokes too!”

Another said: “A running basketball hoop!”

One added: “Out there playing bumper cars full speed with that post!”
