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.

These dogs remind me of the ones I saw roaming the streets of Penang and Ipoh. The thing that surprised me is that these dogs seemed so docile and well fed. Of course there were the odd exceptions. I felt a pang in my heart when I saw a tiny puppy trotting confidently though a busy park. If I could have, I would have adopted him then and there.

Hi Jocelyn,

Free-roaming dogs in south-east Asian cities are almost always dependent on humans for food (either they are directly fed or they are scavengers). Since their survival depends on acceptance by humans, they are normally docile and friendly.

Good news about the pups in these photos - Malleka just told me they have all been adopted!
