Even though Ramu may be an Indian dg living off the streets of Jeevanhalli, Cox Town East Bengaluru, he is treated like a pet by the concerned and caring residents of the colony. Recently when Ramu was hit by a stray bullet in the nearby Army campus, the residents joined forces and financials to keep Ramu alive and give him a fresh lease of life.
It was on 22nd December 2014 when Ramu was playing around the MEG & Centre Campus when there was gunshot echo. When Saraswati went to the gate, she saw a dog lying in a pool of blood, bleeding profusely and breathing heavily. With the help of a few more residents, Saraswati rushed Ramu to a nearby government veterinary hospital and save him. The MEG Center said that the bullet had been fired by mistake and was not fired with an intention to kill the dog.
Ramu is now recuperating on Saraswati’s doorstep and it will take about 15 days for full recovery. The residents have pooled in the money for Ramu’s treatment too.
We at DogSpot salute the spirit of Saraswati and the residents of Jeevanhalli and wish Ramu a speedy recovery.
