Pamela Anderson Rescues Indian Street Dog

Pamela Anderson has welcomed a furry new addition into her home: a stray puppy from India.

The dog was found at a Mumbai construction site and rescued by PETA, who then brought the pup to the States at Anderson’s request.

According to a PETA spokesperson, “Anderson was moved by the pitiable conditions of Indian street dogs, when she came to India in 2010 as a guest on the TV show, Bigg Boss 4. Later when she got to know that PETA India’s chief Poorva Joshipura was visiting the US, she asked her to bring a homeless pup along.”

Now puppy Pyari (which means “loved one”) has a cushy new future, and Indian animal activists hope that Anderson’s generous act will help fight the stigma of adopting mixed breeds and local strays.

“Anderson has set a great example by adopting Pyari. It could motivate others to do the same,” says activist Maneka Gandhi. Adds Geeta Seshamani, co-founder of Friendicoes, “Delhiites have an aversion for Indian puppies. Anderson might help such people get rid of their bias.”

As for Anderson, she’s delighted with the new addition.

“I already have rescued dogs, and I urge everyone to join me in adopting a homeless ‘desi’ dog from their local animal shelter or the streets instead of buying a so-called purebred. I’m tickled to be able to give Pyari a loving home. Desi dogs are stars,” she says.

    We have a desi dog from New Delhi – Bala. Wonderful temperament and so smart! Just today went to a Desi dog get together in Abbotsford. We live in Mission BC – met Bala’s brother today – over a year ago they were separated but I swear they knew each other!. Amazing how many people know about these dogs!
    Thanks you Pamela for helping!
