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.

Batman and friends
I had just started the Indian Pariah Dog Club and I was delighted to find Dr Fox was a pariah dog fan and had even written about them! You'll find an excerpt from his article in the INDog website (in the Articles section), reproduced with his permission.
Here are some lovely dogs from the Nilgiris, photographed by Dr Fox. They were all rescued by his wife Deanna Krantz, founder of IPAN (India Project for Animals and Nature).
Below: Beautiful Batman! He and Xylo emigrated to the US with Dr Fox and his wife. They live in Minnesota. Batman is now 11 years old.
