In a bizarre incident, a pet dog in Kerala was abandoned by its owner for having an “illicit” relationship with a canine next door. According to an ANI report, the 3-year-old white pomeranian was found at the World Market in Chackai, Thiruvananthapuram, with a note attached to its collar.
The abandoned dog was rescued by a volunteer of a non-profit organisation People For Animals (PFA). The PFA volunteer, Shameen, was informed about the dog’s location after which she brought her home. However, when Shameen was trying to put the canine in a kennel, she found a note the owner had carefully tied to the dog before abandoning her.
“The dog is a really nice breed. It is well-behaved. It does not require a large amount of food. It does not have any diseases. It is bathed once every five days. Only issue is that it barks a little. It hasn’t bitten anyone in three years. Used to give it mainly milk, biscuit and raw eggs. It is being abandoned because of ‘illicit relationship’ with a dog in the neighbourhood,” read the note in Malayalam.
Shameem: As I was trying to put her in the kennel, I found a piece of paper attached to her collar. It was a note which said,”She is of a good breed. She doesn’t eat much. Because of her illicit relationship with a dog next door I am abandoning her.” #Kerala https://t.co/1uGHBItkzm
