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.

Canine victims of terror

The recent shocking terror attacks in Mumbai not only claimed innocent human lives but also two canine ones. One was a police sniffer dog at the Taj Hotel, a Labrador. The other was a street dog who lived at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. Another dog at CST was also shot, but survived thanks to a journalist named Shripad Naik who rushed him to the Bai Sakabai Dinshaw Petit Hospital for Animals. The dog has been named Sheroo (from "sher," meaning "lion"). This story appeared in the Times of India a few days ago. Click on the image to enlarge it and read the text.
