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.

Saint Suzie Pinto of Kalhaar

Lisa introduces us to gentle Suzie, a dog in a million:

"Suzie Pinto is a street dog that lives on our block in Kalhaar, Ahmedabad. She is really amazing - so wise. Each time we have a "rescue dog" that's waiting for a home, she takes it under her wing and babysits it in our front garden. It has this calming, soothing effect on the new dog who is made to feel at home during his stay. She did this with Hugo/Pete last summer, and now with Shakespeare, the dog we rescued from IIM and are in the process of re-homing. She's such an intuitive and wise soul!"

I am living in kalhaar for the next 18months, and I have been adopted by a female stray that we call kuta, she is really good, very protective, but with a gentle nature with my husband and myself. I was really pleased to see that some of them do get a good life eventually. It's hard watching so many unloved dogs in the city,
Take care
