The note written in Malayalam reads - "The dog is a really nice breed. It is well-behaved. It does not require a large amount of food. It does not have any diseases. It is bathed once every five days. Only issue is that it barks a little. It hasn't bitten anyone in three years. Used to give it mainly milk, biscuit and raw eggs. It is being abandoned because of 'illicit relationship' with a dog in the neighbourhood."
"I was informed that a dog was found near Wall Market Gate, I went there and brought her home," Shameen told ANI.
She added that although dogs are usually abandoned due to injury or sickness, this was the first time she had seen a dog abandoned for an "illicit relationship."
