For the love of dogs: Ratan Tata’s four-legged friends at Bombay House; pet Goa & his favourite puppies

Tata uses Instagram to connect with dog lovers.

Recently, Tata shared a picture of him with his friend 'Goa' at work.
All of us love dogs and the former chairman of Tata sons is no exception. In fact, Ratan Tata’s love for dogs is legendary.

His Instagram account has become a great space for him to showcase this and connect with fellow dog lovers. From sharing details about his favourite movie about a racer and his dog to giving a shoutout for a dog up for adoption, there is a lot of pet love going around on his account.

Recently, he shared a picture of him with his friend 'Goa' at work, assumably Bombay House, the Tata Group headquarters. Goa is one of the strays who call the building home and is an occupant of the famous kennel as the refurbished Bombay House.


When the kennel was hosted, a human occupant of Bombay House had shared that the leader-of-the-pack title goes to Goa who is quite a regal presence in the building. He is named so, as he journeyed from Goa to Bombay as a puppy. The story goes that he got into the car of a senior Tata executive as a puppy in Goa and refused to get off. And so, he was ferried from the beach town to his new home at Bombay House.

There are whispers that he is Tata’s favourite and that the feeling is mutual. “He would wait for Mr Tata to arrive each morning in Bombay House and ride up the elevator with him. Goa had even earmarked a couch to sleep on in the office,” a long-time occupant of Bombay House said. Tata’s picture more than confirms this story.
