Rudhra

Ironically, the secret to a happy life is to always look sad; then you get whatever you want!
Birth February 2016
Sex Male
Death April 2021

T ossed out onto the street like trash when his owners weren’t able to care for him, (or simply decided they didn’t want a pet anymore), this dear German Shephard found himself all alone and begging for scraps outside a tea shop. Luckily, kind souls spotted him and reported his plight, enabling us to rescue and rehabilitate him. Rudhra had scrotal tumor and skin issues, both of which were addressed promptly and he rebounded in no time. Such a sweetheart, Rudhra loves going for short walks and even enjoys being bathed and groomed.

In April 2021, Rudhra's condition started to deteriorate progressively and X-ray revealed that he was suffering from severe spondylosis*. With his prognosis extremely poor, we took the difficult decision to euthanise him. This gentle giant will be mourned along with every other soul we've had the pleasure of caring for.

* Spondylosis is a type of arthritis spurred by wear and tear to the spine. It happens when discs and joints degenerate, when bone spurs grow on the vertebrae, or both. These changes can impair the spine's movement and affect the nerves and other functions.
