About Me

Mumbai, India
I am an animal lover. I own two lovely dogs and two gorgeous cats. I work with the wildlife conservation NGO Satpuda Foundation in the tiger reserves of central India. Before that I worked for 14 years with the street dogs of Mumbai. I created and manage the INDog Project www.indog.co.in and the INDog Club.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts and for the INDog/Indian Pariah Dog Club. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Membership of the Club is restricted to Pariah Dogs and mongrels (mix-breeds) only. 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 cynologists call the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. The Club is an informal group with over 200 members.

INDogs of Bangladesh

These handsome pups were adopted recently by Adnan Ahmad, an INDog/pariah dog fan in Dhaka. The dark little male is called Frisky and the sturdy little brown and white female is Lallu. Hats off to Adnan for choosing INDogs over any other breed.

Adnan has started obedience training and keeps me updated on the pups' progress. Both have learned the "sit" command and Frisky is now being taught "down." Obedience training is always a good idea and of course it also helps to demonstrate that INDogs are as smart, obedient and trainable as any other breed. Check earlier posts about Dr Manik Godbole's Tommy and Blacky jumping hurdles and Yvonne de Kock's Leela, who does several yoga asanas on command!
