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.

This beautiful dog belongs to Shalini Patnaik and her family.
Shalini lives in the US with her parents, but they spend holidays in Bhubaneshwar where her grandparents live. On one of their trips they adopted a street pup and named him Roshan Kumar.
He lived happily with Shalini's grandparents for a while, but then they started spending more and more time in the US, and the Patnaiks decided to fly Roshan there to join the family.
"We didn't like to leave him in the care of those who were unlikely to have treated Roshan with the same love and affection as we feel he and all dogs deserve," explains Shalini.
Well, Roshan went on a 30-hour long journey, his first time on a plane, and was reunited with his family, in California. "We love and adore our dear Roshan and are so excited to have him with us," says Shalini.
All those people who dump their pets when they get posted abroad - I hope you're reading this.
