About Me

Mumbai, India
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.

Mumdi joins the Club

This is Mumdi, the newest member of the Club. He is ten years old and lives in Mumbai with Aditi Raut's family.

Mumdi was abandoned by someone near Aditi's house when he was about five months old. It was raining heavily and people were being cruel to him. A kind man saved his life and started keeping him as a semi-pet, but as his house was very small he couldn't keep Mumdi inside at night.

Meanwhile Aditi had been trying to persuade her mother to adopt the pup. After a year and a half her mother finally agreed. That's how Mumdi became a full-time pet dog.

His original saviour comes over to walk him every day, so this lucky dog is always surrounded by people who are crazy about him!
