2012 ‘Cutest Indian Dog Alive’ Winners Announced!

Posted on by PETA

‘Cutest Indian Dog Alive’ Winner – CHINKY

With a gaping wound across the left side of her stomach and back, Chinky was all alone on a cold winter evening. She was also ill when she was rescued by Alokparna Sengupta.

The cutest dog has been crowned. Take a look at who won the Cutest Indian Dog Alive contest!

After sifting through hundreds of photographs of loveable rescued Indian dogs, PETA’s panel of judges painstakingly narrowed the list down to 10 finalists. Then we asked you to cast your vote in PETA’s Cutest Indian Dog Alive contest to help us decide who we should pick as the winner.

While we fully recognise that all the Indian dogs in our competition are worthy of the title (the judges are still recovering from “cute overload”) Chinky from Hyderabad is the winner!

Not only is Chinky cute, she is also full of love! Chinky will now flaunt her new “100% Desi Dog” doggie T-shirt and her guardian Alokparna Sengupta a “My Dog Is a Rescue” T-shirt. Alokparna also received an autographed copy of Ingrid E Newkirk’s book Let’s Have a Dog Party!

And because we knew that we wouldn’t be able to look at hundreds of cute doggie photos without plenty of “OMG, how cute” shrieks, we decided to crown two other canine companions as runners-up.

‘Cutest Indian Dog Alive’ First Runner-Up: Jack

When Jack was suffering outside from the scorching heat, Amirtham R from Madurai fed and then adopted him.

‘Cutest Indian Dog Alive’ Second Runner-Up: Danny

After Danny was severely beaten, Rohan Agrawal adopted him to protect him from further abuse. Danny is now 4 years old.

Our first runner-up, Jack, received a “100% Desi Dog” doggie T-shirt, and his guardian received a “My Dog Is a Rescue” T-shirt. Our second runner-up, Danny, received a “100% Desi Dog” doggie T-shirt.

Whether from a pet shop, a puppy farm or an individual breeder, buying a dog means that another in a rescue shelter will lose the chance to find a loving home. The same goes for cats, too.

If you have the time, resources and affection to give, you can make a difference by adopting a loving, sterilised Indian dog from your local rescue shelter. And who knows – maybe next year, he or she will take the top prize in our Cutest Indian Dog Alive contest!
