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.

Help baby Maria find a home, fast!

Maria is a pup with special needs. She was rescued after a car hit and is currently living at the VSPCA shelter in Visakhapatnam. Her spine was injured and she can't use her hind legs and may never be able to. She is otherwise an absolutely normal and active puppy but may have to spend her life in a wheelchair.

Click here to read a blog about Maria by VSPCA volunteer Abigail.

Abigail lives in the US and sadly she can't adopt Maria because she already has four dogs. But she is willing to transport this pup to any destination in the US or Canada if someone in either of those countries would like to adopt her.

Abigail leaves India on 24 June. Please circulate this appeal. Let's try and find a home for Maria, or even a sponsor for her special needs here in India.

Email awscromwell@gmail.com if you can help.
