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.

Indian street dogs as security dogs: a database of incidents

This is self-explanatory...We all know INDogs and INDog-mix dogs are superior watchdogs, but incidents and examples have not been compiled in any one document, as far as I know. I've finally managed to collect instances which I've been sent over the last two years, into this database. Thank you very much, everyone who responded to my appeal. I specially want to thank canine behaviour expert Shirin Merchant for suggesting such a compilation in the first place.

This is just the first step and I'm sure there are thousands and millions more examples out there. Please spare a few minutes to email me anything you have heard about or experienced personally - on rajashree DOT khalap AT gmail DOT com
