Anand Raman was on his way to see his sister on a hot day in Dubai when he came across a dirty-looking young dog desperately seeking shade under the cars parked in the office where his sister works. The scene touched Anand’s heart who brought him home.
Something very special happened when the dog saw Anand; the exhausted animal ran up to the man like someone seeing a long-lost friend.
Anand didn’t imagine that this day would save a life let alone end with a dog, but the animal’s cheerful gaze captivated him, and when the dog fell asleep on his shoulder he couldn’t be more moved.
Anand told The Dodo:
“He was under a car eating leftovers that some workers had left him. His fur was matted and his legs weren’t quite straight.”

“He approached me with a curious but excited disposition, wagging his tail enthusiastically. It was this behavior that first made me fall in love with him. Then we sat there for a while on the sidewalk and he just received my hugs for a while. I took him to the car and he immediately fell asleep on my shoulder.”
Anand immediately went to the vet with the help of his sister and brother-in-law, while at the clinic they found out the reason the dog was constantly tottering; he had rickets on his front legs, due to severe malnutrition. Fortunately, it was treatable and would not have long term effects.
“He was exhausted when I first caught him, so he fell asleep right away on the drive to the hospital. I was surprised to find that his fur was actually pure white after all the dirt and grime had removed from his body.”
Anand named the dog Snowy because of his white fur, it was a slow process to make him realize that he was finally safe, after all the time the dog spent surviving on the streets. At first, when he was home, he would sit in a corner, still not realizing that he finally had a loving home.
Every time Anand took her for a walk, Snowy seemed terrified of stepping back onto the street, and it took a while for her to realize that such a thing would never happen now.
It was a tough road for Anand to finally make Snowy feel safe, but with patience and love she knew she would.
“At first, integrating it into a house was not easy. He wasn’t sure where to go and what to explore, so he sat down in the corner. When I took him for a walk he was constantly terrified of leaving him on the street, so he would take the leash off and run to the parking lot of our building complex. It went on for a while until he realized we weren’t going to let him go anywhere quickly.”
Finally, Snowy understood that his father loves him with all his strength and will never abandon him, he is a very sweet boy and appreciates the hugs and care of his father.
Anand finally said:
“He sleeps and waits for us to come home from work, that’s when he fills us with love and we make him the same. He also adapts incredibly well to any dog he meets and is very good with children and guests.”
