Madhuri Dixit Nene and her husband Shriram Nene adopted an abandoned puppy rescued by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. It was double celebration for the actress as the puppy was adopted on their son Arin's birthday on March 17.
"Abandoning a companion dog or cat is the cruellest thing to do. I'm happy we will be able to give this pup a new lease of life," Madhuri said in a statement.
This is not the first pet Madhuri has adopted. She adopted a 5-year-old Riya but she passed away last year due to cancer. Madhuri had penned an emotional post at that time for Riya. She wrote: “My dearest Riya, as we said Goodbye to you this week, it brings back so many memories of the first day when we rescued you and brought you home. You were skinny and your hair was falling out but the spark in your eyes and innocence on your face made me fall in love with you instantly. Now, 7 years later all I can remember is your tiny little paws, mischievous eyes and how you filled our lives with so much joy. Thank you for your unconditional love. I pray that you are happy and in peace now."
