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.

Meenu, Vetaal and Zoolie need a home soon

These are three good-looking gentle mix-breeds in Pune. They all need new homes soon, as they are not treated well in the neighbourhood and the only person who looks after them, Aishwarya Vishwanath, will soon have to leave the city. She has already done a wonderful job rehoming some of the dogs in her area, but these ones still remain on the street.

Please help! All three are superb watchdogs and would be perfect for a farmhouse/weekend home.




Above: Meenu, neutered female, 6 years old, very docile, calm, friendly and adaptable. Will make a sweet and loyal pet. Excellent guard dog, doesn't allow strangers to enter premises at night.



Above: Vetaal, male, 1 year old. Shy and meek but superb watchdog. Very energetic. Neutered.



Above: Zoolie, female, neutered, 1 year old. Very friendly and good-natured. Can be a great pet or guard dog.

The three are very close and if possible they should be adopted together.

if only we can find a way to change attitudes of people wrt how they treat street dogs. its a sad day when an animal lover has to think about removing dogs from their environment out of fear that others will not treat them well. very sad.

I think tolerance in general is dying out in India, though once upon a time we were quite good at that. Tolerance of animals and other humans.
