Twitter user Dr Vibhuti Gupta (@sevdazola) said she was on her way to work Thursday morning when she saw the rickshaw with the dog wrapped in a blanket in the passenger’s seat.
“Zoom in on the rickshaw and thank the heavens later,” she wrote while sharing two photos of the rickshaw’s four-legged passenger.

Dr Gupta told IndianExpress.com that the photos were clicked near the Holy Family Hospital in Okhla. “It was a sight that I had never seen before. It was beautiful and I couldn’t stop myself. I was awestruck and it was late by the time I decided to capture it,” she said.
A dog lover, Dr Gupta said it was heartwarming sight, “especially when the guy himself is in chappals in this cold and he still managed to keep the dog warm.”
People loved the photo praised the unknown rickshaw driver for his compassion. Some also said they’d like to know more about the man and support him.
