Rajakumari: A male puppy found abandoned by the roadside near Periyakanal in Idukki district was rescued and adopted by two tourists from Europe.
Louis, hailing from England and Eugania, from Germany, who were riding to Munnar from Kochi on a motorbike had found the puppy crawling by the roadside near Chinnakanal. At first thinking that some vehicle must have injured the puppy, they took it to the veterinary hospital at Pooppara. On examining the puppy, the veterinary surgeon Dr. Glady M Vempilly diagnosed that the puppy was not hit by any vehicle but was suffering from calcium deficiency.
As it received injections and tonic, the puppy regained energy and started to move. Louis and Eugania, who had carried the puppy till Kuruvila City did not have the heart to leave it there. They decided to adopt the puppy and named it as Tye.
They plan to take it to Mumbai, complete the formalities and then Louis would take it home to England. An ardent animal lover, Louis has two more dogs adopted from the street. After reaching Germany, Eugania also plans to join Louis and his canine friends in England.
