‘it was not possible for a person to rescue the puppy without endangering one’s own life’, milind raj told local media.therefore I decided to use technology to save the puppy.’


mr raj claims the puppy had been stranded their for two days but since the event reports have surfaced with some users questioning the validity of his claims. the most popular accusation is that the entire thing is a PR stunt. we will let you decide.


  • Looks like an overly complicated mess of a story line created to solve a non-existent problem. The dog does not look distressed, the ditch is not that deep and it’s a loop – not a claw. It adds up to a beneign hoax starring a cute little dog.
