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 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!
