A TikToker adopted a puppy.
However, he is blind and finds it difficult to find his way around the apartment on his own.
Then the young woman has an interesting idea.
Nelson is a cute little pup.
But he has a small handicap: the cute Maltipoo puppy is blind from birth.
But that doesn't stop him from curiously exploring the world around him.
In addition, he is already a real TikTok star – thanks to his foster mom Jen Tripucka.

However, the young woman's disability has caused abdominal pain in the past.
Because: Nelson runs into chests of drawers, cupboards and other objects in the apartment.
However, this can be dangerous, at the latest when the puppy seriously injures itself.

To prevent that, she gave him a strange-looking harness.
A small hula hoop ring is attached to this, which is loosely around the dog's neck.
This should protect Nelson from hurting himself and at the same time help him to orientate himself in space.
This looks so awkward and cute at the same time that Tripucka made a video of Nelson's first attempts.
You can see the puppy running around and surprisingly quickly getting to grips with the hula hoop.
Another blind dog received his own companion instead.

The puppy may be irritated at first, but will not try to brush it off or get rid of it.
He quickly gets used to it and Tripucka cheers him on with the words: "Los Nelson los" and finally celebrates his great "success".
The TikTok users are also enthusiastic, the clip goes viral and has already been clicked 11.5 million times.
In addition, it has been liked over two million times and commented on countless times.
Most are simply touched by the sweet sight and also find the action of the foster mom really hearty.
