Lucknow man makes robot to take care of traumatized dog afraid of human beings

Milind Raj, a robot enthusiast, had recused the dog amid the COVID-19 induced lockdown.

A man from Lucknow has built a robot to take care of his disabled dog. Milind Raj, a robot enthusiast, had recused the dog amid the COVID-19 induced lockdown.

Reportedly, the dog was beaten so badly that he had become deaf and blind. He was very afraid of people, including Raj after being rescued by him. 

Raj then created a robot to feed the dog at regular intervals during his absence, The New Indian Express reported.

“I found this dog during the peak time of COVID-19 pandemic. I took him to the veterinarian who told me about its traumatic condition. So I build a robot which feeds and monitors him, in my absence,” Milind Raj said while speaking to ANI.

Raj said that the condition of the rescued dog, Jojo, improved after seven months. According to the veterinarian, Jojo’s eyesight can be brought back through regular medication.

Lucknow man Raj said that he thought creating the robot was necessary because Jojo, the dog, was afraid of any human being that came near him.

“The robots serve food, monitor its health, and take care of the daily routine of Jojo. This is a rare and special bond between technology and life,” he said.

Raj, known as “Drone Man” of India, was awarded by former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
