A deaf and blind dog in Lucknow got a new lease of life after a man built a robot to take care of him. Milind Raja, a robot enthusist, rescued the dog during the pandemic-forced lockdown and brought him home. He built a robot to feed the dog when he's not at home.
"I found this dog when the pandemic was at its peak. I took him to the vet who told me that he's blind and deaf. So I built a robot, which feeds and monitors him, in my absence," Milind Raja was quoted by news agency ANI as saying.
