I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

This is Hari, a pariah (or perhaps pariah-mix) dog from Sri Lanka. Her full name is Harriet, but the short form, Hari, means "OK" or "very" in Sinhalese.

Hari is owned by
Beatrice Hannah, who was living and working in Sri Lanka last year. As a tiny pup she was thrown at Beatrice's door from a passing motorbike. After being cured of mange she grew into a beautiful little dog. The picture on the left shows her covered in neem oil.

Hari is now eight months old and is living in her new home in Bristol, UK
- in fact she has only just got out of
