Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

Romeo finds a home - thanks to the joint efforts of Mumbai animal lovers

Remember Romeo who has been up for adoption for a while now? Click here and here for her earlier adoption appeals. I absolutely love this pup in the videos Charu uploaded on Youtube.

There's great news about her: she got adopted by a very nice family. And it all happened because of another animal lover who saw Charu's appeal and decided to help. Instead of ignoring or deleting the message.

There are many instances of homes being found simply because those reading the appeals take a little trouble and spend a few minutes of their time circulating the messages, or actually making serious efforts to get these little animals a better life. Think about it. I know you're all busy people, but just a couple of minutes spent by you could dramatically change a pup's fate. Dogs can't circulate their own appeals. If we won't do it, who will?

So please, please don't just shrug off these appeals or leave them for someone else to act on. Post them on your Facebook profiles or forward them to your contacts. The extra effort won't make you rich or famous. But somewhere, a little dog may be very grateful.

Here is a video of Romeo (now named Spark) playing with a new friend she's made.
