About Me

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.

INDogs of central India

Two of the INDogs I saw in tribal villages near Kanha National Park (Madhya Pradesh) last month. Like the photos posted on May 11, these are good illustrations of the "long-term pariah morphotype" seen around the world.

The brown one was one of four dogs owned by a farmer. The other one was in a village called Lamna.
