WATCH: ‘A Happy Story’ Of GV Prakash Kumar And His Rajapalayam

Actor-composer-singer GV Prakash Kumar who has a slew of films in the pipeline has shared a six-minute video talking about his pet dog ‘Happy’. The Rajapalayam dog, a popular South Indian breed, has been with the Sarvam Thaala Mayam star for a while now.

The composer talks about how friendly his pet is and that his companion also serves as a guardian, and survives the warm temperatures of our country better, compared to foreign breeds. He also adds that the dog has a better life expectancy lasting from about 10-18 years. He has trained ‘Happy’ for dog shows using smart dog trainers and reveals that it is always best to train them within four months for them to easily grasp commands and obey orders. He also says that the medical expenses for the breed are very low when compared to other breeds.

Dog trainer Raja also chips in about how there is a misconception that the Tamil dog breed Rajapalayam is an aggressive variety since it’s believed that it was used against British horse troops in the 18th century by martyr Veerapandiya Kattabomman. He explains that these are not companion pups like Golden Retrievers or Labradors, but work well as an obedient guardian like German Shepherds and Dobermanns.


GV’s sister Bhavani Sre, who is going to make her film debut with P Virumandi‘s Ka Pae Ranasingam, also features in the video talking about how good food and immense love are important for dogs. She also adds that the return would be twofold if we shower them with enough love and care.
