This young boy has so much love to offer, it can make anyone’s heart melt. He does not take anytime at all to warm up to a person who has love (and/or food) to offer. His details: 

 Gender: Male
Approx dob: March 20th, 2012
Vaccinations: Up to date
Neutered: In October 2012

Sallu was brought to Dr. Choudhary’s clinic when he was a young pup, at approx 12 weeks. He had been sick on the road for many days before. When he was brought to the clinic, he was thin and shrivelled and suffering from a lung infection. It was also noted that he had an old bone injury, probably from an accident (which is so common and so unfortunate for these innocent, helpless souls), which had healed, but the bone had joined incorrectly. With his medical issues, he was immediately given space at the AAIDD home. The AAIDD home has been originally conceptualised as a post-neutering recovery center, but for cases such as Sallu’s, exceptions are made. Here dogs are cared for, well fed, get required medical attention courtesy Drs. Choudhary. Its a great place for our homeless dogs to recover post surgery but no place for any dog to stay beyond a few weeks, when they are recovered.

Today Sallu is completely recovered from all his medical issues, except his one front paw, which will never be completely normal. Due to this he has a slight limp, and cannot put too much weight on this paw.  Other than this, he is perfectly healthy and wealthy(with love). He is active and plays well.

I met Sallu, for the first time, a few weeks back. His endearing personality won me over. Its very unfortunate that he is still at the AAIDD home, while food and medical attention is available in plenty, this young boy now definitely needs his own family and his own home. He has seen dogs come to the home and leave after their treatment is over, but Sallu could not be sent back on the road as he would not be able to survive since he stayed under care for many days when he was young.

When we talk of providing a home & family to a rescue dog, this boy surely needs to be high on priority. His small problem with his paw, might dissuade people reading the story, but we urge you to take the step forward to consider this lad. If you have any further queries, or concerns, please write to Dr. Choudhary at drpl@choudharypetclinic.com, or call at 011-24113000, or leave us a message to contact you.
