Sachin Tendulkar has been sharing glimpses from his personal life with his followers during the pandemic. From a sneak peek of him cooking to sharing his keen interest in gardening, he has been offering fans a closer look. Now, the sports personality got a new dog and couldn’t stop gushing about it online.
“My new ‘Paw’tner, Spike is making his social media debut today!” he had written as he shared an image with his new puppy. Now, he shared the backstory about the new addition to his family, letting fans know his version of ‘Jab We Met’. But the reason why the pup was welcomed to Sachin’s home won the internet.
Explaining that the little pooch is an orphan, he said in the video that children of the caretaker brought the canine to his farmhouse. And instantly, the cute puppy had the masterblaster wrapped around its tiny paws. He decided to keep the dog and named it Spike, ensuring it had a ‘forever home’.
The energetic puppy was seen playing around the yard and among chickens, as well as jumping on a couch as it wrestled with its toys! The cricketer said it’s an Indian breed.
Watch the video here:
The sweet message from the veteran cricketer melted hearts online. While many thanked him for promoting ‘adopt, don’t shop’ message, others also joined the conversation sharing images of their own indie pets online.

Loves the way you are promoting to adopt desi Indian Dogs rather than foreign breed which are of no use but only for show off.

Dogs are most loyal, don’t go for the fancy show off breeds, adopt a stray dog, they will love you to the moon and back. Everyone one is equal and so are dogs.
