On a scorching day in Dubai, Anand Raman decided to pay a visit to his sister at work. Everyone he saw, including a filthy young dog seeking shelter under a parked car near his sister’s workplace, seemed to be attempting to remain cool.
“He was eating scraps left for him beneath a truck,” Raman told The Dodo. “His fur was matted and his legs were twisted,” says the narrator.
Despite this, the dog ran like a long-lost friend when he spotted Raman. Raman had no intention of saving a life that day, but he felt compelled after watching the happy puppy.
He stated, “He approached me with a curious yet happy posture, wagging his tail ferociously.” “It was his temperament that made me fall in love with him in the first place.”
“We then sat on the pavement for a bit,” Raman added, “and he was fine simply accepting pets from me for a while.” “I carried him inside the car and he fell asleep on my shoulder right away.”
With the help of his sister and brother-in-law, Raman was able to get the dog to the vet right away. “When I initially received him, he was fatigued, which is why he fell asleep in the car on the way to the hospital,” Raman said.
In the clinic, Raman discovered the reason for the dog’s wobbly stride: he had rickets in both of his front legs due to malnutrition. Fortunately, the condition is treatable and has no long-term effects.
“I was shocked to find out that his fur was genuinely pristine white after all the filth and grime washed off his body,” Raman said after bathing the dog.
Raman had underestimated how tough it would be to persuade the small dog who had spent his entire life surviving on the streets that he was now secure.
“Getting him adjusted to living in a house wasn’t simple at first,” Raman continued. “He’d sit in a corner because he didn’t know where to go or what to search for.”
“When I took him for walks, he was always terrified that I would abandon him on the streets,” Raman recalled. “So he would pull his leash away from me and return to our building complex’s parking lot.” “It took a long time for him to realize we weren’t going to let him go anyplace quickly.”
“He rests and waits for us to get home from work, at which point he showers us with affection, which we return,” Raman stated. “He also gets along swimmingly with every dog he encounters and is exceedingly well-behaved in the presence of youngsters and visitors.”
Snowy, on the other hand, has kept one memory from his childhood. He adores embraces from his father even when he isn’t asleep.
