She was sitting in the middle of the Bangalore highway when Velmurugan passed her on his bike. He picked her up and searched without success for her mother. The pup was probably abandoned.
'She was little and I couldn't leave her in the street as she would definitely have died. So I adopted her. At the beginning of the day she was very fearful, but after that she was very active. Her eyes are really beautiful.'
Most people would have passed by and left her there on the highway. Lucky little Minal met one of the rare humans who cared.
'My family named her Browny,' says Velmurugan. 'But she is a fast sprinter so I named her Minal, which means "thunder" in Tamil. Minal Browny.'
The first photo below was clicked after her adoption on 26 March, and more recent ones follow. She plays a lot and like all puppies loves chewing things (and her humans!)
