Dogs help Abin recover from lockdown misery
Ernakulam: Kaniyamkudi native Abin Thomas shelters 15 dogs in his house. This includes 2-month-old Nikki to 2-year-old Appu.
Abin was running a successful ‘Rent a car’ business with 15 cars in Ernakulam district. However, the pandemic affected his business severely and he had to sell most of his cars. Now, he is left with only 4 cars.
He started taking care of dogs to overcome boredom during lockdown. He was always fond of dogs. Once the lockdown was lifted, he took up caring for dogs as a business initiative. He has 15 dogs in his house currently, including labradors, German Shephard, Dachshund and Dobermann. He was able to sell a lot of dogs as well.
He takes care of the dogs scientifically. The dogs will be examined by a vet every month. Abin’s dogs have also taken part in various dog shows as well. He said that even though lockdown caused him misery, these dogs have given him relief, protection to his house and a source of income.
