CLAIMS:

1. A portable protective shield device 100 for protecting a pet animal against a sudden attack, the portable protective shield device 100 comprising:

a pet protective shield capable of being actuated from a ready position to a protective position, the pet protective shield comprising at least one shielding member 116 that, upon actuation, expands to form a shield around the pet.

2. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claim 1, wherein the pet protective shield is accommodated in a hollow baton or stick 102 having a handle 104 at one end and at least one opening

122 at the other end.

3. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claim 1 or 2 further comprising a central longitudinal member 110 that extends longitudinally from the handle 104 to the at least one opening 122 of the hollow baton 102 for supporting the pet protective shield.

4. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein one end of the at least one shielding member 116 is attached to a sliding member 112, said sliding member 112 being configured to slide along the length of the central longitudinal member 110, and other end of the at least one shielding member 116 is freely located in the region of the at least one opening 122 of the hollow baton 102.

5. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the pet protective shield further comprises an actuating mechanism 118 for actuating the at least one sliding member 112 and the shielding member 116.

6. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein a locking mechanism 114 is provided to lock the pet protective shield in ready position.

7. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the locking mechanism 108 is a mechanically or a solenoid-operated lock.

8. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims further comprises a triggering button 108 in proximity to the handle 104 or on the handle to trigger the sliding member

112

9. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the at least one shielding member 116 comprises a plurality of longitudinal wire-like elements.

10. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the at least one shielding member 116 comprises at least one outward protruding portion 124 for guiding the at least one shielding member 116 out of the hollow baton 102.

11. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the pet protective shield comprises one or combination of a cage, a web, a net or a mechanism of similar configuration.

12. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claim 11, wherein the cage is in the form of a metallic mesh or a versatile natural or synthetic material or a combination thereof.

13. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the pet protective shield is made up of one or combination of cloth, synthetic or any other versatile material.

14. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the at least one opening 122 of the hollow baton 102 is covered by an end cap or an end lock 106.

15. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claim 14, wherein the end cap or end lock 106 has provisions to block free ends of the central longitudinal member 110 as well as free ends of the at least one shielding member 116.

16. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claims 14 or 15, wherein the end lock 106 is tied at the distal end DE of the hollow baton 102 by means of a holding mechanism 126, such as a wire, a thread, a tether or a similar mechanism.

17. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the central longitudinal member 110 has a telescopic configuration and comprises a plurality of shafts 110a, 110b.

18. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed claim 17, wherein the at least one shaft 110b of the central longitudinal member 110 is provided with a stopper member 130.

19. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims, wherein the actuating mechanism 118 comprises a coil spring that surrounds the central longitudinal member 110.

20. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in claim 11, wherein one end of the coil spring 118 is attached to the handle 104 and the other end of the coil spring 118 rests on the sliding member 112 or the stopper member 130, such that, in the ready position of the pet protective shield, the coil spring 118 is in a compressed state and in the protective position of the pet protective shield, the coil spring 118 is in an expanded state.

21. The portable protective shield device 100 as claimed in any one of previous claims further comprises a limiting means 128 at the distal end DE of the central longitudinal member 110 or a thread-like member, such as a tether, attached to the handle 102 at one end and to the sliding member 122 or a stopper member 130 at the other end, for limiting the movement of the sliding member 112 or the stopper 130.
