HYDERABAD: Nawab Nazeer Yar Jung Bahadur, a descendent of the Paigah family and a renowned dog breeder passed away on Tuesday due to prolonged illness.  Born in 1929 in Vilayat Manzil, the present day Country Club in Begumpet, to Nawab Waliud Dowla Bahadur, who served as the Prime Minister in the erstwhile Hyderabad State, has owned and bred over 3,000 dogs in his lifetime and has dominated the sport of pure bred dogs with his Paigah Kennels.

Historian Mohammed Safiullah said, “He used to run around all over the country as judges for dog shows. He was a very soft spoken person.”  Bahadur has also written a book called ‘Strolling through the Jungles’, wherein he ‘pays tribute to all animals that have left a mark in his life’. The publisher of his book Notion Press in his bio wrote, “He has trained dogs for the Royal Ceylon Airforce, the Andhra Pradesh police, Voltas, Tatas, BHEL, Western Railways, Travancore Tea Company, etc. Nawab Saab ‘s passion for animals extended right from the tiny squirrel to the intimidating elephant.

“Being an avid lover and connoisseur of horses, Nawab Saab was invited to judge Arab Horses in Saudi Arabia. Nawab Saab has spent a large chunk of his life amid forests, mountains and vales with his beloved dogs,” the bio added.

    It is with deep regret that I find the passing away of this great man. He was a king who walked with the people. I had the opportunity to meet him at the Ooty Dog Show in 2003. Never have I seen such a tribute to greatness. Sadly missed but never forgotten.
