As he grew up, we had to face some challenges regarding his health because of the weather in Delhi and it was really hard to see him go through all the difficult times, but things got better as he got accustomed after a year or more. I have taken him along with me – on my travels outside Delhi and he’s a great companion; no issues so far since he has been trained and all that.
