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.

It was from a dog lover called Pawankumar Singh, and here's what it said: "It was your blog and posts of people who really love dogs that helped me convince my wife and parents to adopt an Indi dog."
That put a really big smile on my face. Great to know our efforts aren't totally in vain and we are helping to change attitudes! Thanks, all you fantastic Indi owners who take the trouble to send me your pet's photos and stories. Let's keep showing off our wonderdogs in this space!
So here's Pawan's little friend Smoke (he also calls the pup Tinkaabell):
"During my schooldays I made several attempts to adopt an Indi dog but failed...my parents were against it," Pawan writes. "But this time after lots of persuasion they agreed and finally we got in a street pup from our neighbourhood. We named him 'Smoke' because my dad was fuming with anger at us for adopting a street dog. But now he loves and adores him the most."
Who wouldn't love this pup? Look at his expressions!
Pawan, I'm sure all the readers of this blog would congratulate you on your choice. Lucky little Smoke and lucky you. Indis are the best!!
