Blind Yorkshire Terrier Gets Stuck Behind Fridge in Viral Video

A video of a blind Yorkshire Terrier has gone viral on TikTok, having attracted more than 15.3 million views.

Why? Because the footage, shared to the social media app by a woman called Christine Marsh, shows the cute moment the little dog mistakenly got stuck behind the fridge.

In the funny clip, posted to her account Harshmarsh6, we can see the little pooch barking away while facing the wall in the gap behind the fridge.

The amused pet owner then walks over and removes a broom to free the dog, as the voiceover says: "She may be blind but at least she's not mute."

According to Hillspet.com there are many reasons why a dog may go blind, but common causes are "cataracts, glaucoma, progressive retinal atrophy, and suddenly acquired retinal degeneration (also known as SARDS)."

However, poor eyesight doesn't mean a poor quality of life, and dogs who suffer from blindness can be aided with a series of tactics including keeping a routine, removing unnecessary
obstacles and learning commands words such as "watch" and "step."

The clip, which can be watched here, has gained lots of traction since it was posted to TikTok on November 21, 2022, having attracted 1.8 million views and 35,900 shares.

Additionally, many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the adorable footage.

One TikTok user, No-Lu, wrote: "WHAT HELL WHERE AM I [dog-face emoji] poor baby [laughing-face emoji] [laughing-face emoji]."

Another person, Tori, added: "She probably thinks she waiting at the door [crying-face emoji]."

Emma Tyrrell asked: "So how did she end up there with broom put behind her!??"

Robertitotalkingdog gushed: "Poor baby...."

User6772920927492 admitted: "My old Yorkshire used to get stuck in the most silly places when she got blind."

On Ona commented: "BRO I GOT JUMPSCARED

Nies typed: "How did we get there."

Chloe <33 joked: "I think she sees you in the wall holding a treat."

In 2021, another Yorkshire Terrier went viral on TikTok, this time due to his dislike of being woken up in the morning.

Pet owner Lisa Mattuchio documents her daily battle to wake up 8-year-old Eddie on her popular account called Eddieonwheels.

In one funny video, Mattuchio slowly approaches her pet to peel back the blanket he is under.

"Eddie, come on, bud, it's been about 10 minutes, come on," she says

This prompts the feisty pet to begin growling, clearly annoyed at being roused from his slumber.

Mattuchio gently lifts the dog until he is sitting upright and the snarling eventually subsides.
