However, this man and his daughter decided to help one of these animals in their capability. Unable to bear the plight of a four-year-old Pomeranian, Veera, A. Kasi and his daughter, Gayathri, built a wheelchair for their faithful companion. Gayathri, an IT employee adopted four-year-old Veera and brought home her before the COVID-19 lockdown.
