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.

Indian toon dog!
Did you know that the ubiquitous Indian street dog is represented even in the cartoon world? Thousands of Indians already know Rocket, the faithful companion of the much-loved comic strip character Chacha Chaudhary. Here's one of the book covers.
Mridu Minocha (Sonu's owner) drew my attention to Rocket and she tells me that his look has changed - earlier he had shorter fur and a pointed tail.
I think we can safely describe him as an INDog-mix!
