why the chain ?

Devi (Chennai, India) on 23 December 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I wondered why he was chained...found him in a Temple courtyard belonging to one of the staff there.
Well, his previous dog must have been stolen:)))

I don't like the chain but if that prevents him running away then I can understand. Maybe a softer lead would be nice... Gorgeous dog!

@ursulakatariina: The owner is very possessive and had gone out chaining this beautiful dog !

@wcamille (Wallace): I suppose so..heard he is very possessive and had gone out chaining this pet of his so that no one would take him away!

Perhaps they do not want anyone to take him. He is a beautiful dog

Finnish National Dog Finnish Spitz is the same color. Even that does not thrive connected to the chain. It is the hunters guy and run all game.

I am not happy with dog's chained Devi, especially chained most of the time. This is a beautiful dog and I hope the chain is temporary. A great shot Devi. 5*****

A fine portrait of this beautiful dog. He could have been given a better life with out chain.
May be his master was over protective ?
