A deaf and blind dog in Lucknow got new life after a man built a robot to take care of him. Milind Raja, a robot enthusiast, rescued the dog during the pandemic-enforced lockdown and brought him home. He built a robot to feed the dog when he is not at home.
“I found this dog when the pandemic was at its peak. I took him to the vet who told me he was blind and deaf. So I built a robot to feed and monitor him in my absence,” Milind Raja was quoted as saying ANI news agency.

Strollers and wheelchairs for dogs with disabilities are common around the world, and animal lovers often adopt canines that cannot move freely or have other health problems. Dogs with arthritis or hip and joint problems are often seen with mobility aids so they can lead normal and happy lives.
Milind Raja, a resident of Gomtinagar in Lucknow, is a law student. He had previously made drone disinfectants when the pandemic broke out. According to Raja, “the drone can carry seven to ten liters of disinfectant spray and can be operated remotely”.
