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.

Our relatives in Sri Lanka!
Meet Flopsy, Sri Lankan Pariah-mix and Bob, Sri Lankan Pariah. Obviously very very close cousins of our INDogs. (Another Sri Lankan, Hari, was featured here in a 24 January post.)
Flopsy and Bob belong to Kara and Kevin Cottle of the US, who have been living in Negombo, Sri Lanka for three years. They'll all be going to the US soon.
Here's what Kara has to say about the canine members of the family: "Flopsy was the alpha leader of a local pack whom we befriended. Bob just chose the right gate to crawl under when she was a puppy. Both of them had to be coaxed into the auto at first, but now riding around is their favourite thing in the world." We can see that from Flopsy's photo!
