Indian Celebrities and Their Pet Dogs

Dogs are one of the cutest and most lovable pets in the world. Human’s love for dogs started from a much earlier era. Dogs are considered to be the first domestic animal by humans.

Moreover, dogs play an essential role in our lives. In this busy and stressful life, human beings find joy and happiness through domesticating pet animals, especially dogs.

Domesticating dogs not only helps humans from strangers and thieves but also helps to develop happiness and lower daily work stress.

So cinema is considered one of the most creative jobs in this world. However, the people who work in making cinema are so sensitive and have a high chance of getting stressed out and down. So many celebrities are domesticating dogs as their pets to release stress and work pressure.
