Hello everypawdy! My name is Dilawar & I am from India. My name means “brave” & after people hear my story they say my name absolutely suits me. In India, I had some "nightmarish" days. I faced animal abuse by unidentified people in May 2021. I was just minding my own business on the streets, looking for food. I promise I wasn't getting in anyone's way, but I was brutally beaten with an iron rod (pictures are too upsetting to be shared here). I was in so much pain and everything around me went black. Luckily, I was found by an animal rescuer. My injuries were severe and I underwent two major (successful) jaw reconstruction surgeries + my left eye had to be removed in June. My nose is slightly crooked but it does not hamper my breathing – in fact, I think I look like a rather dashing version of Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean! ;) Despite all that life has thrown my way, I have proven each & every naysayer out there wrong by rocking all my surgeries AND not letting my past dampen my spirits!
If I am invited to a party or a picnic, I will certainly be the party starter – I LOVE people and food in EQUAL measure. However, my vet says I can just have semi-solid food. I have many options. I can eat wet food, mashed up dog kibble with water, rice and eggs or rice and chicken with yogurt. Don't worry, we'll figure it out. My vet also says I am not allowed to play with hard toys or chew on bones or sticks. But I'm easy to please and easily entertained, so no worries! Did I tell you how much I love people? If you give me scratches & cuddles – I am yours FUR-EVER! I am good with kids too. I don’t have food aggression or such, but prefer to take my meals separately from other dogs.
I like going on long walks and am comfortable walking on a leash. People and bird watching are my jam. I don’t get anxious in new settings or by loud sounds, but I do become alert. I currently live in a boarding environment, so I am crate trained. I never let my crate get dirty. I wait to do my business until I am let out of the crate, so I am potty trained too.
I have the heart of a warrior, so I don't want you to feel sorry for me. I truly believe my past is over, and better days are ahead. If you are looking for a cuddle & snuggle buddy to adopt - then I’m your guy! I promise to fill your world with the colours of the rainbow & SO MUCH love! Please end my search and make me YOURS by getting in touch ~ I can’t wait to start my life with you!
