The impact of dogs in the lives of human being remains unparalleled. The four-legged creatures become an integral part of families they are part of, enjoying as much —or even more — love as the humans in the household. The smaller breeds are furry balls that remain child-like all through their lives, while the bigger breeds serve as intimidating security for their families.
The love dogs give their family members is unconditional. They are huge stress-busters and bring in immense joy and happiness to their human families. Being away from them is always heart-breaking, especially if they have to be left in a care-taker’s kennel or in someone’s care when the human family has to be away for a while. One can thus understand the plight of the modern cricketers who spend long stretches away from their home and their pet dogs.
Among the more high-profile Indian cricketers, men like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are all dog lovers. Rohit is a PETA supporter while Dhoni adopted a stray dog in 2013. Many, many modern cricketers are dog lovers. Below are a few of the current crop of international cricketers – or their family – with their pet dogs.
