Description
Dogs were kept in the Mughal imperial palace and attentively
cared for by one keeper for every two hunting dogs. Akbar’s
biography notes that the emperor liked dogs so much he
imported different breeds from distant lands, and Jahangir
requested English hunting dogs from the ambassador Sir
Thomas Roe. The tradition of collecting and keeping dogs
was continued by the succeeding emperors and vassal kings.
The newborn puppies are still too young to open their eyes.
