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.

South-East Asian Pariah Dog
These pictures were taken by Dr Radhika Das on Pulao Ubin island off Singapore. The second picture is of the Taoist shrine outside which this dog was clicked.
Dog enthusiast and expert Gautam Das believes the dog is probably "either 3/4 or 7/8 pure native village dog (Kampong Dog), with the other 1/4 or 1/8 being German Shepherd Dog (GSD). In India at any rate, only GSD admixture with our INDog produces the common GSD tan-with-black-saddle colour pattern, as seen here."
Readers travelling in Asia, Africa, Central and South Amercia - may I request you to look out for local pariah-type dogs and click them for this blog? Please email them to me at rajashree DOT khalap AT gmail DOT com
Radhika, thanks for permitting me to use these pictures!
