Pup for adoption, Pune

Sameer Prabhakar has rescued a really cute pup and wants to find a good home for him. I'm copying the appeal from his blog:

I was hanging out near my friend's shop yesterday night around 8 p.m. when I heard the next-door shopkeeper trying to shoo away a tiny puppy using his big leather slipper. I went and picked up the poor guy and scolded this shopkeeper. The pup was so terrified that he had peed.

Well I did not know what to do so I took him to my earlier maid's house, she has agreed to take care of him for a few days while I find somebody to adopt this poor baby. Unfortunately I can't keep him because I am working 6 days a week and already have a dog.

The pup seems to have been picked up by somebody and then abandoned, he has a little rag-tag collar around his neck. He seems to be around 15 days old and in good shape. It is black in colour with some brown patches on its paws. I am sure he will make a lovely pet.

Please pass the word around...let's help this guy find a nice loving family to live with.
