Sheru the dog who survived the Mumbai attacks

(Last Updated On: December 20, 2008)

Sheru was a stray dog hit by an errant bullet when two gunmen opened fire in a crowded railway station during the first night of the assault. The survival of the aging Sheru, despite a gunshot wound to his left shoulder, has become an uplifting and soothing symbol of Mumbai’s recovery to many of the city’s anxious and angry citizens.

That’s the story on WashingtonPost, that caught my attention today.

It’s a touching story I couldn’t resist posting.
