Vizag techie on tour in India with his pet for a “wandering” cause | Visakhapatnam News


VISAKHAPATNAM: The dog has been regarded as a loving companion of man since time immemorial. Sahitya Vardhan, a young technician from Visakhapatnam, is several notches ahead of the rest when it comes to his connection to dogs.

Vardhan has embarked on an expedition from Kanyakumari to Kashmir to raise awareness of street dogs. But the twist in the story is that he travels the country by bicycle with his independent stray dog, Lexie, whom he adopted as a five-month-old puppy.

A separate trailer has been custom designed to provide a comfortable environment for the dog. During the ride, Vardhan feeds the stray dogs and educates people about the importance of adopting street dogs.

Speaking to ToI from Uttar Pradesh, Vardhan, who is also a canine behaviorist, said the main goal of the expedition was to educate people against animal cruelty. “Only aggressive dogs that are hungry bite sick people. Otherwise, they are calm and friendly creatures, ”he said.

Strayers have more immunity, adopt them, urges Vardhan
I urge people to adopt stray dogs rather than purebred dogs, as the former would have more immunity and be powerless on our Indian roads. Recently, a dog barked a major fire in an apartment in Bangalore and saved 150 people, he said.

Vardhan, who pursued his Masters in Information and Communication Technology in Australia, had to quit his high-paying software job in Bengaluru for the expedition he started on September 20.
