Stray Sri Lankan Dog

By pdunstan_Greymoon    
During our tour of Sri Lanka we saw many stray dogs laying by the side of the road. But this little fella we came across in a car park. As you can see he is a poor little dog and all you felt like doing was going over and giving him a big hug to make him loved but, alas, rabies is a risk there so we couldn't risk it.
He, however, was quite content to stand there and pose for me and I will always remember him for that!
WOuld have loved to brought him home with us but we got 3 dogs already!!

No Animal Welfare Act in Sri Lanka................SadSadSadSad
Sadly I don't know what the policies are there. I was aware though of literally hundreds of stray dogs, whatever town or village we drove through there was always a number of strays just laying down peacefully by the side of the road...Really have no idea how so many remain unscathed with the driving there.

Very sweet and sad that he looked like he wanted to go home with you as much as you wanted to take him.
