Nameless Puppy Has A New Home!

No, we couldn’t keep Nameless puppy but, only five minutes after I posted a classified advert online, advertising a free puppy to a loving home, someone responded. Then, another responded, and another. I couldn’t work out how to take the ad down, people kept asking for more information about the ‘beautiful puppy’.

Meanwhile, a friendship was blossoming. Alfonso was enchanted with Nameless puppy. As she slept, still exhausted from the trauma of being abandoned, Alfonso sat next to her, protecting her and kissing her. When she was awake, they played together so sweetly. Both of their little tails wagging, one curly and the other straight.

I took Alfonso into my room and let Nameless puppy sleep. Three minutes later, the same cry that originally brought her to our attention filled the house. I opened my bedroom door and Alfonso trotted out to her, when she saw him she started wagging her tail. I couldn’t stand to hear her cry, so I let them stay together.

Things were quiet in the living room, and with dogs, it’s a good idea to be suspicious. I went out to check  they weren’t up to mischief and my heart just melted…

???????????????????????????????The maids arrived and were so surprised to see how smitten they were with each other, they thought it was hilarious. ‘Brother and sister’, said Lalita, and Chanda responded with ‘nahi, husband and wife’. After arranging the marriage (sorry Salsa), they laughed even more. 

Meanwhile my husband contacted the first respondent to my online advert, he had a kind voice and owned a field on the outskirts of Nagpur where he kept several other dogs. He sounded perfect, Nameless puppy really loved Alfonso and so would be very happy with some playmates.

All four of us got into the car and went to drop her off, it was really sad to see her go, but we are so happy we could save this little abandoned puppy.  Alfonso has been a little down since she left, hopefully we will see his friend Salsa soon, that will cheer him up!

If you find an abandoned puppy you are unable to give a home to, and if the animal shelters are demanding a sum which is way beyond what you can afford, I recommend going online and placing a classified advertisement (I used– it’s free!). There will be someone out there who wants to love a little puppy. I know that there are thousands of street dogs in India, but a very small puppy who has lost his mother cannot survive alone.

If you hear the desperate cry of a puppy looking for their mother, please rescue them. 


  1. Awwww, so glad she found a home. I would have gone weak at the knee and kept her, spay her to have no copulation problems with a male dog in the house of course 🙂
    I rescued a kitten in May, without thinking any further. I start wondering if I would be able to resist keeping another rescue if one showed up, even though right now we are having our hand full 🙂


    • I really really really wanted to keep her but wasn’t allow/wasn’t practical :(. Your rescued kitten is SO cuteeee! It’s so hard to resist but now I have found that it’s quite easy to find nice homes, I am extra vigilant!

      I hope you are all well 😀 xxx


  2. You and your husband have very big hearts for rescuing that little baby. The person who adopted him also sounds like an expert. Puppies up to the age of 6 months are delicate little things and all their vaccines, medical care should be done properly. I make sure my two little brats visit the vet regularly. 🙂


  3. I lived in Delhi for more then 1 year (internship) and I never understood how people treated dogs there. I lived in a small village in South Delhi and we meet a dog family. Both male and female (no one to take care of them) were great (they had babies many times). We give them love and they treated us the same way. When they saw us, they jumped wanting attention and they will accompanies us till work. I saw them running and trying to bite some kids, because they were throwing rocks, if you don’t treat dogs with respect they might go after you! Now there i left India behind I miss them so much just knowing that after work they will be there to give me some love. I just ask to people if they don’t like dogs, at least ignore them! Don’t harm them! I saw really shocking things in India related to dogs and hope this changes with the new generation!


    • Awwww, I expect you wanted to take them home with you!!
      Actually, just before I left India to visit England, a small child picked up a rock and was about to throw it at Alfonso with a huge smile on his face (the child was about 18months). I was so shocked, someone must be teaching them to do that.

      I hope this changes soon, people do horrible things out of fear xxx
