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.

Notty is not my first pet. I had a pomeranian sixteen years ago. We used to live in Indore in a spacious house which had a big backyard for the dog to move around in and play. We had to give him away since we were going to shift to Bangalore and stay in a flat with limited space. For all these sixteen years almost every day I had been pestering my parents and trying to convince them to get me a pet..and now finally I managed to get one in March 2008. It was unexpected and the best gift I could ever have, 20 march being my birthday!
I have been religiously feeding street dogs, puppies, and kittens till date, but I never really thought of adopting a street dog for a cause! Like most of us even I wanted a pedigree dog. The reason I went for a mix-breed dog is that it was easier for me to convince my parents to get the pup home now.
But let me tell you I never thought I would feel so good about owning a mix-breed. Everyone in my family feels proud to say "Humne adopt kiya!" ("We adopted him"). And I wouldn't say that I have given Notty a loving home...he has made my "home sweet home" sweeter and more loving!
Notty is one of the pups Charu Shah put up for adoption.
