Our Stories


Being with dad for months in Bangalore i was so bored, Luckily commune18 happened to both of us. I pondered the question of how big this park was , little did i know this was my new Home!

This place looked like a reward for being born a dog

Over and over again you’ll hear me talk about the innumerable human friends i made this past year at commune18.

I look belligerent but i barely even bark, taking advantage of this I was Kidnapped! Let me narrate this to you.

It was a heavy downpour in chikamaglur that day, dad was out of town and being untroubled i quietly fled out the gates of commune18. Unaware i would be kidnapped to a Brahmin household! Yes, that was the sad part.

21 Long days until dad found me and took me along, just when i was giving up there came the rescue. I was popular than anyone else in town for 21 days , I was on TV Channels, Social media , Newspapers ! Ah! Grateful .

Story does not end here, visit me at commune18 for the complete story.

Golu was kidnapped, whereas I was lost until commune18 found me.

Abhorred golu for getting all the affection from cult members. He was always off leash in the property which gave me extreme anxiety until one day we made peace . Since then our brotherhood remains untouched except that it breaks slightly when the other one gets more attention from female travellers. We jointly hate humans and bully other dogs the whole time at commune18.

You can find me near the restaurant area or in a female dormitory.
