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.

Pepper, Kali, Creme and Coco need good homes, fast

These adorable pups are called Pepper, Kali, Creme and Coco. They appeared here in an adoption appeal with their mother Cleo on February 25, 2008. All of them are being looked after by Charu Shah of Mumbai.

Charu writes: "All these puppies (four females), their mother Cleo, and a male dog Max, are very playful and loving. Their owner was going to abandon the mom and the pups on some open ground at Dahisar on Monday. Somehow I have managed to put three of the pups at a kennel. Both the older dogs are still with her, but she may leave them on the road any time, if I don't get them out of her house.

The pups and mom were kept locked on her balcony all day and even at night. One fell from the balcony on Monday and died. One more also fell from balcony and has got a fracture. The other three pups are safe at the kennel, but I can't afford to keep them there for a long time.
The pups are two months old now, and the older dogs are one year old. They have had their vaccinations, and will also be sterilized at my expense. So if anyone is interested in adopting them, please contact me at shahcharu76@yahoo.com I can manage to keep them at the kennel only till end April, after that they may have to be put at a shelter. They have never been anywhere except a house, so it will be very difficult for them to survive anywhere except in a loving home.

Please pass on this message to anyone you know and help in getting these innocent kids a home, in Mumbai!"
