Naughty was a dear pet daughter of her pet parent Sangeetha Iyer. She was loving and a faithful companion support to her parent during a tough time of her life. Naughty was instrumental in helping her parent break some barriers in her conservative household and around, barriers in the way many humans viewed dogs and how they eventually changed and welcomed her over time. Naughty passed away from o varian cancer in 2017. Sangeetha tried all medical treatments including dialysis but it would not help. Sangeetha decided to honour Naughty by establishing a formal initiative with her name, and Naughty’s Pet Sanctuary was registered in 2022.
